CPD’s Strategic Plan embodies principles identified under President Obama’s Presidential Task Force on 21st Century Policing, and is guided by its focus around:
Building trust and legitimacy; technology and social media; officer wellness and safety; policy and oversight; training and education; and community policing and crime reduction.
