As part of the national conversation taking place regarding police practices, our department has received numerous inquiries about our policies, training, equipment, transparency and accountability. We appreciate the questions from those individuals who have reached out to us as they seek to understand more about our police department. As community partners, we value the relationship and trust that we have built together in our community and we believe that dialogue and understanding are important. The information outlined here is meant to broadly address the most common questions that have been asked of us. Some of the topics could fill hundreds of pages, so this is not meant to be a complete reference. If after reading this overview you find yourself with additional questions, we welcome you to call or stop by in person to obtain additional information.
