I am truly honored to have the privilege of serving the community and the dedicated men and women of the Cheyenne Police Department (CPD).
In December of 2015 the President of the United States appointed the Task Force on 21st Century Policing and asked them to identify best practices in policing that promote effective crime reduction strategies while building public trust. The Task Force came up with best practices police agencies should implement. CPD completed the attached report, Cheyenne Police in the 21st Century, to asses our accordance with the best practices. The assessment revealed that our agency was already fully engaged with all 59 recommendations. However, CPD wanted to do better. CPD went on to accomplish the following goals to promote community policing:
As you can see, we are leaders in community policing; that does not mean we are soft on crime. Our officers and detectives are the best there are when it comes to bringing desperados to justice. Cheyenne has a very low violent crime rate, and we aim to keep it that way.
In closing, permit me to leave you with some insight into what you can expect from your police chief. I will always be honest with the citizens and men and women with whom I serve. I will strive to improve the professionalism within the Police Department and never lose sight that we can only improve the quality of life in Cheyenne by working together in a collaborated effort.
I hope you are as proud of our employees as I am; they are setting the example for other police departments to be like.
