District Policing is an organizational structure and method of assigning police resources in a more efficient way. Decisions regarding police resources are data driven with an increased emphasis on crime analysis.
The district model is built on the success of community policing teams throughout the city. It is intended to involve all members of the department instead of a few specialized units. Under the district policing model, patrol officers will be assigned the same part of the city on a more consistent basis. This will provide officers an increased familiarity with the areas they patrol.
One of the advantages of community policing is the familiarity that the public has with their community officer, mainly because the community officer is assigned to the same area every day. District policing means that patrol officers will also be assigned, for the most part, to the same area every day, creasing their familiarity with the community as well.

Each district will be staffed daily to meet the needs of the community. Special events are generally staffed with additional personnel, assigned specifically to that event.
While special events do tax our resources, no one neighborhood will be adversely affected or have it staffing reduced.
