The Dixon Police Department is pleased to announce the launch of a new public transparency portal on its website. This portal provides access to important information that members of the community have been requesting, including department policies, annual reports, results of public satisfaction surveys, use of force statistics, SB1421 information, crime statistics, ways to make a complaint or provide a compliment about police staff, Automated License Plate Reader (ALPR) information, AB481 military equipment use disclosures, and links to information about the California Public Records Act.
The Department is committed to fostering transparency and building trust with the community it serves. The portal offers a wealth of information that will help residents understand how the Department operates and make informed decisions about public safety.
"We understand the importance of transparency in policing and believe that the portal will provide members of the public with a clear understanding of our policies, practices, and performance," said Chief Robert Thompson. "By making this information available, we hope to strengthen our relationship with the community and promote accountability and trust."
The portal is easy to use and accessible to anyone with an internet connection. Visitors can browse the different sections and download any of the available documents. They can also access a section that provides details on how to make a public records request if they cannot find the information they need on the portal.
"We are committed to serving the community with integrity, professionalism, and transparency," added Thompson. "The portal is just one way we are working to build trust and strengthen our relationship with the people we serve."
