News Release
GPDPS Recognized for Excellence in Policy and Training - 05/06/21

Last year, Grants Pass Police personnel responded to more than 34,000 requests for assistance— everything from disturbances and criminal investigations to mental health crisis interventions and animal complaints. To maintain a consistent and professional response, the department relies on comprehensive, up-to-date policies.

Recently, the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety was recognized by the Lexipol Connect program for achieving Gold level for consistently and effectively disseminating policies to officers, issuing timely policy updates as laws change, and ensuring officers are trained on policies. Lexipol is the nation’s leading content, policy, and training platform for public safety agencies; the Connect program tracks GPDPS performance on five metrics proven to measure success in policy management.

"Our commitment to internal oversight highlights a sincere desire to build community trust and nurture police legitimacy. Policy - and regularly training on policy - is crucial to the success of the department. We are proud to be recognized by Lexipol Connect for continuously improving professionalism and safety," says Chief Warren Hensman. 

The Department of Public Safety’s excellence in policy and policy training enhances community safety by ensuring consistent, effective response based on national best practices.
