Davidson Police Department Recognized for Reducing Risks: Becomes First Agency in the State to Complete New Review Process

The Davidson Police Department has been recognized as the first law enforcement agency in the state to complete a new Law Enforcement Risk Review Process begun by the North Carolina League of Municipalities (NCLM).

At the August 9 Davidson Board of Commissioners meeting, NCLM Public Safety Risk Management Consultant Tom Anderson presented Police Chief Jeanne Miller with a plaque recognizing the department’s efforts in risk reduction by completing the review process and adhering to industry standards related to risk reduction.

Chief Miller is part of a Police Chiefs Advisory Committee that was instrumental in developing the review process, now being utilized in police agencies across North Carolina that are part of the League’s property and liability insurance pool.

“Chief Miller and the Davidson Police Department are clearly at the forefront when it comes to identifying and following best practices designed to enhance public safety, lower risks to officers and limit liability for taxpayers,” Anderson said. “We believe this initiative can do the same for departments all across the state.”

The Law Enforcement Risk Review Process is designed to assess an agency’s adherence to best practices, court decisions, and policies and procedures related to high liability activities in law enforcement.  The goal of the review is to enhance public safety by reducing liability exposure, enhancing officer safety, and validating that policies, training, and operating procedures are meeting industry standards.  The NCLM initiative is supported by the North Carolina Association of Chiefs of Police.

“The Davidson Police Department is proud to be the first recipient of the League's risk assessment program recognition,” said Chief Jeanne Miller. “The League's risk assessment recognition, coupled with our being a CALEA accredited agency, makes us reach for the highest standards and strive to meet best practices in our profession.  By exhibiting the skills, good judgment, and qualities that are a hallmark of our profession, we provide the best service to our citizens.”
