I am pleased to introduce the Sun Prairie Police Department’s 2013 Annual Report. The report summarizes and explains what we look like, how we operate, and the work we accomplish.
The mission of our department is to build relationships and solve problems. We use a variety of community-based, problem-oriented, data-driven strategies to accomplish that mission, many of which are highlighted within this report.
The delivery of mission-driven policing services is an expensive endeavor. As such, we must constantly evaluate how our outputs impact our primary outcome of eliminating problems confronting the community. Various related performance measures are included for your review.
Policing is done by people for people. Our talented and dedicated members work hard throughout the year to deliver exceptional service in a trustworthy manner. I am proud of their contributions and glad to document their many accomplishments.
I appreciate your interest in our department’s members and operation, and invite you to continue to partner with us as we jointly pursue safe and enjoyable surroundings.
Patrick J. Anhalt
Chief of Police
