The Gold Beach Police Department’s most significant statistic for 2010 was the increase in Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) activities engaged in by GBPD personnel.

 A CAD event is an activity undertaken by a police officer or volunteer in the line of duty. There were 5,339 CADs  for 2010, compared to 2,933 in 2009, for an increase of 82 percent.

The numbers and types of CADs for 2010 were:

•Dispatch Call For Service – 1,331

•Lobby Traffic and Phone Calls – 5,459

•Citations Issued – 698

•Arrests – 73

•Case Reports – 371

•Building Security and Foot Patrols – 2,594

•After hours call outs – 63

   

  Other GBPD accomplishments during 2010 included:

•Implementing a new risk-management-based policy manual to include a Daily Training Bulletins (DTBs) program that reviews and tests officers’ knowledge of those policies on a daily basis. Both projects were funded by a City-County Insurance Services Grant.

•Implementing an organizational chart of the Gold Beach Police Department that outlines each person’s role within the department.

•Setting departmental goals and objectives for 2010.

•Participating in the National Rx and Over the Counter Drug Take Back Program. To date, the GBPD has taken in 89 pounds of prescription and over-the-counter medications that otherwise might have been disposed of improperly or could have come into the hands of young children or substance abusers.

•Participating for the first time (in partnership with the Curry County Sheriff’s Office) in the National Night Out program by hosting a block party on Moore Street. The event was commended by the National Town Watch Association which recognized GBPD with their “Rookie of the Year” award.

•Continuing participation in the U.S. Department of Defense’s Reutilization Program that provides equipment to law enforcement. To date, the equipment has ranged from a pick-up truck to lap top computers, with an estimated value of $60,000.
