Service Delivery Model
Our Policing Philosophy
Three fundamental policing philosophies make up the cornerstones of our operations and approach.
Community Policing is rooted in the belief that public safety issues are a shared responsibility between police and the community. As such, communities should be active partners in the delivery of many police services, from crime prevention and education to investigation, enforcement, and victim support. It is important that police work collaboratively with the community to identify and respond to local policing needs as well as the issues and social needs that underlie many community crime problems. Community policing emphasizes positive police-community interaction to foster dialogue, build relationships, and mobilize partnerships to proactively address public safety.
Intelligence-led Policing acknowledges that research, analysis, and evidence-based decision-making are critical to effective and efficient policing. Reliable and timely crime analysis should be a fundamental driver in the mobilization of police and community resources (i.e. enforcement, investigation and prevention measures targeting prolific offenders, high crime areas, and crime causation factors). Intelligence can help not only identify patterns and linkages to assist in solving investigations or predicting and preventing future crime, but also to understand the relationship between crime and community.
Integrated Policing recognizes that greater effectiveness and efficiencies can be realized with a higher level of interoperability among law enforcement personnel. Our ability to integrate police services across policing jurisdictions with common public safety issues and policing priorities enables us to maximize our resources and increases our ability to respond in a more timely and coordinated fashion.
