In addition to the every-day policing and investigations performed by the Cheyenne Police Department, each year several goals are identified. In 2018 the department selected seven goals.
One of the goals with the most impact for Cheyenne was conducting High Visibility Enforcement. These operations, in which multiple officers were watching for speed violations in particular corridors at the same time, resulted in a decrease in crashes in those areas. Another initiative, the continuation of Operation Change, has resulted in officers working directly with the transient population in the downtown area to address their needs. This led to decreased jail costs as well as a dramatic reduction in the amount of transient arrests.
In 2018 the department successfully completed most of its goals and the community is encouraged to read the full report at the link above. For the goals that weren’t met, progress has been made to incorporate them into future department endeavors.
