Abstract: THE POLICE DEPARTMENT CONTINUED TO WORK TOWARD PREVIOUSLY ESTABLISHED OBJECTIVES DURING THE YEAR, AND MANY POSITIVE ACHIEVEMENTS WERE NOTED. PROGRESS WAS MADE IN THE DEPARTMENT'S UTILIZATION OF SPACE ALLOCATION, THE CONSOLIDATION OF RECORDS, AND THE INSTALLATION OF COMPUTER-AIDED DISPATCH SYSTEM IN THE COMMUNICATIONS DIVISION. PLANS WERE FINALIZED FOR THE INSTALLATION OF AN AUTOMATED LATENT FINGERPRINT IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM.

APPROPRIATE PARKING AREAS WERE DEVELOPED TO ELIMINATE THE NEED FOR MOTOR POOL PERSONNEL. THIS REDUCED THE NUMBER OF SQUADS AND TOTAL MILES DRIVEN. EQUIPMENT WAS PURCHASED IN AN EFFORT TO BEGIN AN AUDIOVISUAL STUDIO IN THE COURTHOUSE COMPLEX, THEREBY PROVIDING INSERVICE TRAINING TO ALL PERSONNEL AT A SINGLE LOCATION. THE DEPARTMENT CONTINUED TO PARTICIPATE IN SEVERAL GRANT PROGRAMS, INCLUDING THE ORGANIZED CRIME INTELLIGENCE UNIT AND CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION ANALYSIS.
