[ARCHIVED] Madison Police Department Institutes “Protecting Our Community” Initiative

The Madison Police Department (MPD) is committed to working with the citizens of Madison to continually improve the quality of life for our community. With summer upon us and schools in recess, this is the perfect opportunity to implement the “Protecting our Community” initiative; thus, ensuring that our neighborhoods are safe and free of criminal activity. Protecting our community is not only important, it is paramount to improving quality of life. A recent survey conducted by the MPD and community interaction has overwhelmingly conveyed the desire for increased police presence in our neighborhoods.

“Our aspiration is to increase interaction with citizens in our community and note citizens’ concerns and requests in order to better fulfill the mission of the City,” states Police Chief Larry Muncey.

Recognizing the positive impact a greater presence in our neighborhoods has, MPD will be increasing patrol efforts to:
1). Enforce Traffic Laws. 2). Reduce Property Crimes.
3). Provide Community Neighborhood Training Programs.

“Madison is a community of neighborhoods comprised of families,” Madison Mayor Paul Finley added. “Focusing our police in the neighborhoods helps ensure we are protecting the core of our community.”

Citizens with concerns or information about criminal activity, speeding motorists, or other public safety related needs should contact the newly appointed Community Officer, Lt. John Stringer at O (256) 772-5658, C (256) 990-0286 or via email at john.stringer@madisonal.gov. Lt. John Stringer has been awarded the privilege of being the MPD first Community Officer, and has been entrusted with the responsibility of orchestrating and ensuring the success of the Protecting Our Community Initiative.
