With community input, Gainesville police look forward
The Gainesville Police Department is developing a strategic plan with the help of the community. Residents brainstormed ways police could implement their goals at the last of four community meetings that were held around the city. GPD Police Chief Tony Jones says they will use the information from these meetings to develop a three-year plan.
Jones says he wanted the residents of Gainesville involved in future planning because GPD works for the community. He says the main concern he has heard from residents is looking for feedback from police.
Jones says the feedback is helping GPD revise their vision and mission on improving service in Gainesville. This is the first strategic plan the Gainesville Police Department has ever created.
