Duration: 60 Minutes
Module 1 Resources
Recorded on: 2020-01-14
Unit 1 Slide Deck: Beyond Strategic Planning
Unit 2 Recording: Beyond Strategic Planning

Too many times police strategic plans are not implemented because they are not tied to the budget and they have limited community support. The police alone cannot make a community safe.  The community and police need to work together to address the key critical issues that impact public safety.

The Community Crime Control Planning process is a community first approach to strategic planning.  It calls for extensive community input on developing strategic crime control goals that will impact public safety.  The webinar covers project mobilization, development of measurable goals, and creation of a community steering committee.

Development of a Community Crime Control Plan allows a police agency to build a business plan and budget proposal that will support the strategic crime controls to which the community has expressed commitment.

After the webinar, participants will have access to the Crime Control Handbook which describes the steps in the Crime Control Planning process and provides examples of materials from cities that have gone through the process.

Resources Mentioned During Webinar:

Audience Comments:

  • “Great information that we can use to continue our community relationships with our citizens.” — Alexis
  • “Communities will be as safe as they want (plan) to be.” Include as many voices as possible. Trust the Process. You (I) do not know everything or need to know everything. Let the community identify its own priorities. Limit meddling from mid-level managers trying to run the show.” — Daniel
  • “The realization that not everyone in the community may want to do the same job, leaving it up to the community volunteers and asking for their input before assigning them. We utilize a survey that explores why some individuals may want to volunteer for one area and not another because of a fear. What we found was more education on the subject usually changes their viewpoint. Knowledge is power! Thank you for a great seminar!” — Kathleen
  • “Very good overview – not being a police planner, I was not sure what to expect … but Mr. Bellmio did a good job of laying out how to tackle creating a community crime control plan.” — Steve
  • “Absolutely everything was fabulous. Peter was extremely knowledgeable and direct. His articulation of the steps, framework and tips – just superb!” — APRIL
