Strategic Planning within the Police Department

As the Township grows in size and complexity so will the needs within our public safety functions. Over the last three years the Board took a pro-active approach to public safety and focused on the strategic needs of the fire service. Staff is now working with CTVFC and CTEMS to implement those recommendations. The other major component of our public safety function that is also dedicated to be proactive is our Police Department. Accordingly, I am requesting approval of the following Motion that will help examine at least 8 major areas, including recruitment, career development and training, a critical challenge as we continue to grow the ranks of that department.

Requested motion: Motion to approve the August 29, 2019 Proposal from Bartell & Bartell to undertake a two phase strategic planning effort for our Police Department at a cost not to exceed $35,000.00.
