“Policing is most effective when the officers are working with the community and not strictly policing it,” said Chief Cummings. “This public safety plan places a strong emphasis on strengthening relationships with the community, while also creating a more efficient organizational structure within the department, implementing crime data analysis initiatives, and expanding pivotal units like the Homicide/ Violent Crimes Unit and Community Policing Unit. These efforts will work toward building safe and strong neighborhoods.”
