The North Police Department strives to promote open dialogue between the police and the public. The Department has established guidelines to regulate conduct of officers, to address public concerns and to increase awareness about the role of the police and the impact to both police and the public. One measure is to establish ties in neighborhoods through the use of community-oriented policing. Secondly, the Department works to form and build positive relationships with the community in an effort to combat crime. This is accomplished by training officers about such topics as cultural diversity. Officers are required to receive initial and continuing training related to cultural diversity and interpersonal communication skills. The North Police Department believes that effective relationships must contain a mutual understanding of various cultures, beliefs and backgrounds. In addition to understanding cultural diversity, the North Police Department has strict policies prohibiting biased-based policing. The Department has adopted a concept and policy to deter profiling individuals based solely on ethnicity or based on common traits of a particular group of persons.
