Georgetown Police Department

Community & Transparency

commUNITY

The CommUNITY Initiative is a strategic framework for the Georgetown Police Department’s community engagement plan. The concept is a creative play on the word “community.” The police department has identified seven major stakeholder groups in which the department works with in order to forge stronger relationships, create opportunities to listen and learn community concerns, teach and communicate when and where appropriate, as well as to collaboratively identify and solve public safety related problems within our community.

 The seven CommUNITY stakeholder groups the police department will be focused on include:

  1. Neighborhoods (micro-communities)
  2. Youth
  3. Business Community
  4. Seniors
  5. Faith Based Organizations
  6. Non-Governmental Organizations (Social Services)
  7. Media

The initiative will further position the police department to take a leadership role in bringing the community together through collaboration on various programs and partnerships, even across stakeholder groups when and where appropriate.

The Law Enforcement Recognition Program is a voluntary process where police agencies in Texas prove their compliance with 166 Texas Law Enforcement Best Practices. These Best Practices were carefully developed by Texas Law Enforcement professionals to assist agencies in the efficient and effective delivery of service, the reduction of risk and the protection of individual’s rights.

While similar in nature to the national accreditation program, the Best Practices Recognition Program is easier to administer, lower in cost and is designed specifically for Texas Law Enforcement. The Texas Legislature demands a great deal of professional law enforcement in Texas and the Best Practices were specifically designed to aid Texas agencies in meeting those demands and providing the best quality of service to the people of our State.

Since its inception in 2006, over 100 Texas Law Enforcement Agencies have been Recognized and many more are currently in the process to become Recognized Agencies. While members of the Texas Police Chiefs Association recognizes and supports the national accreditation program, The Texas Best Practices Recognition Program has clearly become the new Gold Standard for Texas Law Enforcement!
