In late 2016, the Casper Police Department initiated a 5-year strategic planning effort and document to direct and guide daily operations, enable prudent and informed planning, aid in decision making, properly prioritize resource allocation, and inform the citizens of Casper. This is the first strategic planning document the Department has produced. Law enforcement is at a critical juncture in the United States, and this document both guides the Department and informs our partners and community on what we do, why we do it, and how we do it. By strategically planning over the next five years, the Department intends to realize its strategic objectives, ensure mission success, and properly prepare for future challenges and opportunities, all while operating under the auspices and stewardship of a municipal budget. The Department looks forward to releasing this plan upon completion of the Comprehensive Analysis of Police Services.
