CORE 4 graphic title
  Community Collaboration is a process of participation by people, groups and organizations working together to achieve results. Each member must be willing to plan and share vision, mission, power, resources and most importantly, goals. Collaboration builds trust, ensures accountability and defines success.

GOAL: A community that trusts and openly supports police.
 
   
 
Crime Management is how we work to prevent crime from occurring. It is partnering at each level of the criminal process to analyze crime and find alternative outcomes for those affected.

GOAL: Police, the Criminal Justice system and the community change a person's behavior from crime to acceptable social norms through intervention and positive impact.
 
   


 
Professional Accountability is an internally driven mindset to improve ourselves and the relations & outcomes we have with those we serve. As an agency we are transparent about corrective action and responsive to our community about how we police ourselves.

GOAL: Professional behavior is demonstrated by each of our employees.
 
   
  Employee Wellness is focused on supporting better mental and physical health at work for all employees. These efforts include physical and mental fitness programs, education and incentives, interventions for and improved access to care and social support for our employees.

GOAL: Our workforce is actively engaged in physical, social, emotional wellness activities.
