"Since being appointed as the Chief of Police, we remain under construction as an organization. Ever learning and seeking to understand. Policies and procedures are evaluated and re-written. Instructors are being developed. Leaders are always being developed. Training programs are being instituted. Operational programs are being assessed, evaluated, and revised.
