Mayor Mike Allen reported his constituents have expressed approval of the MWPD and its leadership since Sullivan has taken the agency’s reigns.
“I’ve heard some very positive comments about the police department lately,” he said.
According to Sullivan’s report, the future looks bright for the MWPD in 2013.
With the completion of Project 365 in the southeast portion of town and the graduation of the first group of fourth responders, the department continues its focus on community policing.
The department is also set to implement a new records-management system and computer-aided dispatch system during the current year.
As approved by council, the MWPD fleet will continue to change as six additional Dodge Chargers are added to the lineup.
Officers will be introduced to even more new in-car technologies, designed to make police response quicker and more effective. Additionally, the advancements will include electronic case filing with the county attorney’s office.
The department will also take part in active shooting training, along with county law enforcement and other local authorities.
