Colleen Langdon, Citizen
Since I work with police officers all over, I really
thought that I should get a better understanding of
exactly what it is that they have to go through and
what they do on a daily basis.
Mark Griffiths, SPD
Community engagement is important.
We work for the citizens and it's important for them
to see what their police department does and have
direct feedback from them on our performance.
