Salisbury Police Department receives crime reduction training

Officers with the Salisbury Police Department on Monday underwent training about a model for crime reduction.

Known as stratified policing, the model places an emphasis on problem-solving, crime analysis and accountability at all levels within a police department.

Rachel and Roberto Santos, the creators of the model, led the training for the Salisbury department.

The model received the 2008 International Association of Chiefs of Police award for excellence in law enforcement research.

The goal of the training is to discuss the application of the problem-solving process and accountability procedures as well as present relevant analytical products that can be used to implement crime-reduction strategies in Salisbury.

“This crime-reduction model is easily adaptable to our police department because it makes use of our existing structures and will be immediately implemented to reduce crime,” said Salisbury Police Chief Jerry Stokes. “The implementation of stratified policing will be led by Maj. Shon Barnes, who is experienced with this model. This is another great step toward our vision of improved safety and services to our citizens.”
