have been redeployed through computer directed
patrol.
 Continued emphasis upon community policing and
increased positive resident contact in our
community.
 Traffic is a reduced priority except for motor units.
 The neighborhoods in decline (South Wind, Inlet &
Robalo) are being addressed by our Transitional
Neighborhood Team (TNT).

STRENGTHS:

The Police Department continues to receive strong resident support and wide latitude in goal
accomplishments (providing a safe community environment).
WEAKNESSES:

Training in high liability areas was woefully inadequate (multi-year improvement underway).

North Palm Beach is surrounded by communities with more intense criminal populations.
OPPORTUNITIES:

Continued focus on crime prevention, community policing and engagement on quality of life
and code enforcement concerns.

Pursuit of a COPS grant for 8 additional officers to open a fourth zone South of Lighthouse is
under consideration and open to discussion.

Examination of the benefit of license plate reader deployment in The Village as an investigative
and intelligence aid is underway. Grant sources will be sought during this discussion as well.

Consideration of merging our Communications, Records and radio infrastructure with Palm
Beach Gardens/North Com is underway to both experience, better service delivery, reduced
costs and more effective communications with partnering communities. All current Records,
Communications, CADS and radio infrastructure is reaching end of life with significant costs on
the immediate horizon.

During fiscal year 2014/2015 the Police Department has requested conversion of one Police
Service Aide/Park Ranger to Criminal Intelligence Analyst to enhance deployment
strategies/times to better provide predictive staffing deployment to crime hotspots.
THREATS:

As the economy improves, Reserve Officer deployment historically drops. The challenge will be
adequate staffing without as many reserve hours worked.

Continued crime increases plague The Village after a 22% decrease in crime during 2013.

Insufficient sworn staffing increases overtime significantly, contributes to work place injuries,
fatigue and lower productivity.

Continue highly visible neighborhood interaction/accessibility.

Establish a business closing program to deter closing time robberies.

Continue predictive/preventative directed patrol assignments.
