General Orders are the Police Department’s policies governing every aspect of our day-to-day operations and actions. Our General Orders are the culmination of laws, legal decisions, best practices and community input. They serve as a daily guide for our employees and are one of the many ways we ensure we maintain a professional workforce and act in a way that is consistent with training and national standards. Please visit this page again to see additional General Orders posted in the future.
