The most pressing issues facing law enforcement today
- Low staff morale and high burnout
- Employees leaving or retiring in record numbers
- Ineffective communication with citizens
- The national narrative on Public Safety isn’t consistent with experiences in your local community
- No reliable way to gather and measure citizen feedback
What can we do?
Balance the national narrative
In recent years, the national narrative on law enforcement has had a negative impact on local communities where citizens and police have a consistently positive relationship.
Without a way to record and quantify the overwhelmingly positive law enforcement and community relations, departments are left to deal with the fallout of negative narratives on the news — reduced community engagement, eroded trust between citizens and officers, and low officer morale.
In this situation, your department needs a solution that shines a light on the positive reality between citizens and police in your local community.
Keep citizens informed
People today have much higher expectations for in-the-moment communication due to conveniences like rideshare GPS tracking, informed delivery from the post office, and even pizza delivery apps that send step-by-step updates. Keeping citizens informed and updated about their call or case makes them feel valued and shows them that the department cares.
Communicate more proactively with citizens by sending automated messages about their call or case using a simple, easy-to-use tool that doesn’t require extensive technological know-how. Turn it on and let it do the work for you.
Build officer morale
Morale is about more than whether or not someone enjoys their job. Morale is critical to a person’s motivation, diligence, performance, and their overall wellbeing.
In law enforcement today, declining morale is a serious threat. Police burnout and low morale are causing officers to leave in record numbers. In fact, a survey of 200 departments revealed a “45% increase in the retirement rate and a nearly 20% increase in resignations in 2020-21 compared to the previous year.”
