The following message from Chief Bowers was posted by the City of Piedmont:
It is my privilege to introduce the Piedmont Police Department’s Strategic Plan for 2021-2024. This strategic plan represents the collaborative efforts of many people who took the time and had the trust to engage in open and honest conversations about community safety in our City.
This plan, and the work contained in it, comes at a critical time in our City’s history. Navigating a pandemic and addressing social equity issues, all with the specter of environmental challenges and natural disasters in the background, require us as a community to to come together. While the outcomes of these challenges are not known we are confident that our partnerships, openness, and accountability will position the Department to meet the current day challenges as well as challenges yet to come.
In this strategic plan you will find identified priorities and objectives which are aligned with our Vision, Mission and Values to provide police services, programs and facilities that meet the needs of a diverse community in a financially responsible manner.
We are appreciative of all who contributed to the development of this plan, which as a living document, provides a roadmap for our organization and community to realize a safe, equitable, and effective form of policing to contribute to a vibrant community.
Thank you for taking the time to review this strategic plan and learn about all the ways the dedicated women and men of the Piedmont Police Department are working to contribute to the safety of Piedmont.
We want to be transparent with you, our residents, about our police department’s policies and procedures. We acknowledge that, while we strive to employ progressive policies and a culture of accountability among our ranks, we can always do better.
