Improve Recruitment, Retention & Employee Development

Our Police Department must recruit qualified candidates in our agency and retain the knowledge, experience, and training developed throughout the employee's career to better serve our citizens.

This includes the need to provide adequate, up-to-date training for our employees, have the demographics of our department reflect those of our community, and hire individuals from our city and the local community.

Over the past couple of years, the Department applied for several grants from sources outside the City to help fund various agency positions. After the competitive grant processes, the Department was awarded funding for over 40 positions at no cost matching from the City.
