The Salisbury Police Department recently uploaded its 2017 Annual Report to its city webpage at salisburync.gov/SPD. The report, featuring the department’s maxim of “Every neighborhood has an officer and every officer has a neighborhood,” is a first for the department.
The near 20-page publication details calls for service, incident statistics, priority area accomplishments, staffing demographics and its goals from January through December 2017. Extracting figures and reviewing department’s accomplishments took one month to compile into the comprehensive report.
“I created the report as a means for providing residents and other interested parties a quick overview or reference of what the police department accomplished in 2017,” said Police Chief Jerry Stokes. “The annual report showcases the number of calls we handled, detailed information about our department structure and our successes. Also, while not mandated, an annual report is helpful for our Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA) accreditation process. I hope that people will use it to learn a little more about what their police department is doing, how hard our officers are working, and what we hope to accomplish in this upcoming year.”
