(From the City Budget Survey) Police Resources
The Police Department does a great job. I appreciate all the community involvement, but sometimes wonder if it takes away from the traditional policing that is required?
A key component of traditional policing is crime prevention. In addition to spending a considerable amount of energy and resources investigating crime after it occurs, we also focus on developing community partnerships to prevent crime from occurring in the first place. These partnerships are based on trust and respect which must be earned everyday. Our outreach efforts afford us opportunities to earn trust and ensure the police and the community are working together to keep Chandler safe.
