I am truly honored to represent the hard working men and women of the Rialto Police Department. This year will be very busy for us. We will continue reshaping the Area Command model of Community-Based Policing. This program is designed to encourage open communication, enhance community confidence, and streamline the delivery of police services. We will also be embarking on the development of a department strategic plan that will help guide our organization for the next few years.
We will make the best use of technology to increase our ability to fight crime. We will utilize modern policing methodologies to include Evidence-Based Policing to improve our overall effectiveness. We will continue to embrace volunteerism; working to enhance the great programs that we already have in place. But most off all, we will continue to foster the great community relationships we have worked so hard to establish over the past several years.
We will continue to move forward as an organization, striving to become the premiere law enforcement agency in the Inland Empire region of Southern California. We understand that the fear of crime can be best reduced through the balanced delivery of policing that consists of three components, prevention, intervention and enforcement. We also recognize that maintaining community safety can only be achieved with the support and involvement of our community.
I invite you to check back often as we will continually update our website to offer information and assistance. We also welcome your comments and suggestions.
