As part of the process of retooling our West Valley City Police department and to help restore the public trust in the public safety, the City Council unanimously approved my proposal to direct our City Manager to create a Police & Public Safety Task force. This group will be an important resource as we work to solve problems and seek best practices.
The duties of this task force will be to:
1. Explore Attributes & Qualifications of new Chief of Police.
2. Examine Partnerships & Collaborations with other law enforcement agencies.
3. Seek best practices involving chains of command and evidence handling.
4. Brainstorm methods to foster safe neighborhoods by fighting drugs and crime.
