Respectable Police Officers I've learned that protecting and serving others goes best with customer service practices. Police officers should greet complaints with open ears and problem solving mentality. In addition, police officers must understand the composition and community issues in the areas they police. It is my goal to encourage police officers to build on that approach. Police officers should never conduct themselves in any manner that could be perceived as inciting or provoking citizens, even during an apprehension. I am committed to making sure that our police officers and our communities maintain a healthy dialogue and partnership. I will encourage and advocate for officers to be more involved in community events. We want all community stakeholders to have positive interactions with our police officers.
