Peoria Police Transparency Dashboard
Community policing involves three key elements: developing community partnerships, engaging in problem-solving, and implementing community policing organizational features.
This transparency dashboard was designed with those three elements in mind;
- You will see how our officers engage the community to encourage active partnerships with the people we serve.
- How we use data to proactively identify problems, develop innovative responses, and evaluate the results.
- How technology will provide access to accurate community information to enhance two-way communication that supports community policing partnerships and problem-solving efforts.
"A good society is characterized not just by liberty but by mutual respect and responsibility. When this breaks down, it takes a lot more than police officers to put things right." -David Lammy
