Best Practices Review of Oakland Police Department
The Oakland Police Department is committed to moving Oakland forward. We recognize the importance of our role in increasing public safety. Reducing crime and the fear of crime, building trust and partnerships with the community, and institutionalizing organizational excellence are our priorities.
The attached report was written by expert consultants and identifies current law enforcement best practices and implementation recommendations. The goal of the review was to identify areas where we could improve our service delivery, increase efficiency and effectiveness, and increase transparency and community building.
We have already begun implementing key aspects of the plan, including geographic policing, district investigations, strengthening of the Compstat process, creation of a community advisory group for each district captain, and additional focus on the Ceasefire Strategy. We have seen recent reductions in homicides and shootings and we are dedicated to continuing to lower the crime rate and increase safety across the City. There is still a great deal of work to do, but with continued and diligent efforts, I am confident we can achieve lasting results.
