Policing only works when the community has an understanding of our goals and confidence in our delivery. Understanding happens through relationship building and information sharing and that is exactly why we are introducing our 2016 annual report, which summarizes and explains who we are, how we operate and the work we accomplish.
The many positive and productive contributions and accomplishments highlighted in this report are the direct result of our smart, caring and hardworking department members who remain committed to a profession that values continuous improvement. I am humbled and proud to be associated with them and their work.
We are acutely aware that our success is explicitly tied to the breadth and strength of our community partnerships as today’s societal issues are too broad and too complex for any of us to go it alone. I greatly appreciate this community’s continued interest and support as we jointly pursue safe streets, effective and fair criminal justice and enjoyable surroundings.
