BUNNELL POLICE DEPARTMENT“Professional Law Enforcement” PRINCIPLE PROGRAMS
BUNNELL POLICE DEPARTMENT“Professional Law Enforcement” CRIME PREVENTION
CRIME PREVENTION Goal: Prevention of all forms of crime within the City of Bunnell through proactive Crime Prevention Programs, Community Education and reduction in Crime Statistics within the City of Bunnell. Objective: Bring the department to full staffing and assign an investigative position to follow-up with investigations, arrests and closing out case files. Continue to increase police visibility in all neighborhoods. Continue agency cooperation to promote increased efficiency and effectiveness in local law enforcement. Continue Community Policing Initiatives to combat crime while interacting with the community. Continue partnerships with local schools and agencies to educate students in areas of safety with the development of age appropriate educational programs.
CRIME PREVENTION INITIATIVES The Bunnell Police Department has many successful policing initiatives which help to combat crime within the City of Bunnell. These initiatives include the following: • Watch Over Bunnell Card: this initiative consists of a “spot check” card left by the officer after taking corrective action at a residence or business while the occupant was not at home or the business was closed. This initiative targets “Crimes of Opportunity” and helps in the reduction of the number of crimes committed. • Park and Walk: This initiative requires officers to exit their vehicle and walk to interact with residents and or businesses. This initiative increases visibility and community relations, enhancing our ability to obtain vital information to combat crime. As a result, this initiative also contributes to the solving of criminal investigations. • Business Check: Officers are trained and encouraged to practice a “Zero Tolerance” in problem neighborhoods plagued with illegal narcotics activities. Officers are permitted to spend the majority of their free patrol time in these areas to increase visibility. As a result, the flagrant and open practices of narcotic’s sales are greatly reduced in these neighborhoods. In addition, many arrests and seizures of narcotics, weapons and firearms are attributed to this initiative. • Investigative Follow-up: Officers are trained and permitted to follow up on cases to capture repeat offenders plaguing the city in areas of person and property crimes • Neighborhood Crime Watch: The Chief’s Advisory Board has created a Neighborhood Crime Watch Program as an extension to the board’s purpose – “Crime Prevention”. Monthly and/or quarterly meetings have been scheduled with several Bunnell communities.

A PROPOSAL FOR THE FUTURE PRIDE SERVICE INTEGRITY
NEEDS AND GROWTH The following is a list of requirements needed to allow for the growth of the Police Department and the efficient and effective policing of the City of Bunnell: • Officer Position: (3) To allow for three Officers on during each shift • Crime Scene Investigator: (1) To relieve patrol officers on scene and get them back on the road. Allows for more efficient assigned duties and coverage. • General Investigator Position: (1) To allow for follow-up investigation of case reports which will have a direct impact on criminal activity and crime statistics. • Equipment:Updated equipment to include Tasers – X26; Laser RADAR; Patrol Rifles; Hand-held Radio. • Building: The Bunnell Police Department successfully moved to the historic City Hall • building in October, 2011. This move has instilled a sense of pride and definitely improved • the public’s perception of its Police Department. • However, the Department is still in need of more space. Growth is inevitable – allocating the • entire City Hall building to the Police Department would be the least expensive option.
A PROPOSAL FOR THE FUTURE In order for the Bunnell Police Department to continue to effectively and efficiently serve the City of Bunnell, growth will be inevitable. As the City continues to grow, so will the need for Law Enforcement. After review of the “Needs and Growth” of the department, it is our proposal to allocate the entire City Hall building to the Police Department. By doing this we will address several of the needs of the department. It will allow for growth over many years, to include the department’s move toward accreditation. It will address the need for more space to house equipment, ammunition, files, records, property and evidence. It will also provide the space needed to train the officers. IMAGINE……. WHAT THE FURTURE COULD HOLD… PRIDE SERVICE INTEGRITY
