We can receive immediate feedback and dialogue from our residents within minutes of an encounter with our officers.”, said Chief Lang.
“I am truly humbled and honored to receive such a prestigious award from NOBLE, an organization committed to justice and that continues to serve as a national thought leader in law enforcement. Our team has worked incredibly hard and feels extraordinarily inspired by this award and recognition.”, said Johnson.
