Transparency in Policing

Over the past decade, law enforcement as a whole has been the subject of much scrutiny. Communities across the country have begun to question different aspects of their police departments. We believe the more informed you become, the better you will understand YOUR police department.

We have had a long commitment to community policing and building community trust. We believe our Transparency in Policing page is just another step to strengthen our relationship with the community we serve.
