I am pleased to present the Hot Springs Police Department’s 2021 Annual Report. As Hot Springs' Police Chief, I feel it is my obligation to provide our community with transparent information regarding your police services.
The goal of this report is to make available to the public, with easy access, information about our department, including last year’s statistics, organizational changes, demographics, accomplishments, new programs, and much more. Our agency has been committed to community policing for several decades. I believe this year’s annual report, even during a pandemic, reflects how our organizational culture and goals continue to be guided by that core philosophy.
In 2021, many efforts were made towards even greater transparency and community engagement to move us into the future. It is our commitment to the citizens of the Hot Springs community to provide transparency in all that we do. I feel that this report is another way for our department to provide relevant and up-to-date information to the citizens we serve. I hope that you find this report useful and enlightening.
