WSCPC Proposed Police Deployment Plan

The goal of Council’s deployment plan it to provide 24/7, 365 days year police coverage to the entire city. This can be accomplished by dividing the city into 17 geographical areas

  • These smaller areas would allow for continuity of service and accountability.
  • Two officers per shift would work each area 7 days a week 24 hours a day.
  • Officers would be less likely to be pulled for other assignments
  • Vacations and time off would be covered by other officers within in the unit.
  • Officers would still attend community meetings.

The following is a comparison of the City Council and the Mayor’s Plan:
