In the days following the tragic death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, which we unequivocally denounce, our department received numerous inquiries about our policies, training, equipment, and accountability.
We appreciate the tenor of those individuals who have reached out to us as they seek to understand more about our department. A civil and constructive dialogue is something we welcome from the community we serve. We strive to never be content with the “status-quo”, but instead to always be seeking, learning, and adapting where needed.
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 exhaustive.
If after reading this overview you find yourself with additional questions, we welcome a conversation over the telephone or an in-person meeting at our station.
