Citygate completed a comprehensive services delivery and staffing review of the San Luis Obispo Police Department. The study included a review of the adequacy of the existing deployment system, scheduling, and staffing. Citygate’s report included a detailed analysis of the response time, crime, and call data that drives the recommendations for staffing in Patrol, as well as an assessment of the staffing of the support functions in the Department. The Police Master Plan was very well received by executive management and then the City Council. The plan continues to drive annual budget decisions in a very tough environment to fund improvements.
