Police Group Picture on Town Hall steps

On June 9, 2020, the Davidson Town Board directed staff to conduct a review of Davidson Police Department policies and procedures to ensure we continue to model best practices in community policing.  The direction included a review and comparison of recommendations from 8 Can’t Wait and President Obama 21st Century Task Force on Policing as well as a review of annual police data reporting.

On July 14, 2020, Davidson’s Chief of Police Penny Dunn presented an outline of the above listed project recommendations with a comparative analysis to the Davidson Police Department policies, procedures and operations to the board.  Details on the department’s current application of these concepts in its own policies, procedures, and operations can be viewed through the links below.

Chief Dunn also provided an overview of the police department’s annual Biased Based Policing report for the calendar year 2019 data.
 
As part of the Davidson Police Department’s commitment to hold themselves to the highest standards, Chief Dunn offered up a list of next steps she and the department intend to take in the coming weeks and months. First among them is to make previous “No Agenda” public meetings with the Chief possible through a virtual platform.

The Davidson Police Department is actively seeking community feedback on the information presented July 14th. Please access the above links and watch at your convenience. Then, offer your input through SpeakUp on the town’s website here. Residents may also provide feedback by emailing policeinfo@townofdavidson.org.

The Davidson Police Department appreciates all the residents’ input and support as it continues to serve the community.
