Dolan DATE: 10/15/09 SUBJECT: RPD Neighborhood Beat Expansion and Police District Realignment Plan MESSAGE: The Raleigh Police Department is embarking upon very challenging and exciting times as itprepares for the Clarence E. Lightner Public Safety Center and plans for the associated interimmoves necessary to make construction possible. Next month the RPD will open a new InterimDowntown Police District Station on Cabarrus Street and in January we will begin moving policeadministration operations into the recently acquired office building on Six Forks Road.In order to effectively respond to our growing city’s police service demands, we have developeda plan that expands the number of neighborhood police beats serving our community, andrealigns our existing police district boundaries to enhance overall operational efficiency. Ourability to fill vacant police officer positions combined with the RPD’s commitment to prioritizefield police staffing to meet unique neighborhood needs, provides us with an opportunity toexpand the number of neighborhood police beats from 56 to 62. thus we will achieve a two-yearcombined total enhancement of 13 additional neighborhood beats under the plan.The current police district alignment model, established in 2002, served to significantly improveour ability to provide police service throughout the city. Today we find it vital to evaluate districtboundaries in view of both our present and future police service deployment requirements. Tothat end, this past summer Captain N.D. Grodi and a team of rank-and-file department membersembarked upon studying present and future deployment needs in consideration of the city’s newcomprehensive plan, call data, growth patterns, response times, and numerous other factors toprepare a police district realignment proposal that addresses current growth and service needs.Captain Grodi was joined by Captain C. Bertram, Captain J.C. Perry, Lieutenant A.B. Lull,Lieutenant D.W. Linthicum, Sergeant K.S. Anderson, Sergeant M.L. Peterson, Sergeant D.G.Bean, Sergeant S.C Oosterhoudt, Sergeant A.H O’Connell, Sergeant T.S. Jordan, April Morris,Brent Quick and Stacey Joyner.Captain Grodi’s team’s proposal, supported by command staff and district commanders,relocates the North Police District to the interim police administration building on Six ForksRoad, thereby locating the North District optimally within the middle of the revised districtboundaries. Correspondingly, the Northeast District is realigned to more effectively incorporatethat region of the city, .\and the Northeast District’s operations staff is moved from its present  location on Atlantic Avenue to the vacated North District facility on Litchford Road. Bothrelocations will provide strategically beneficial location for an interim period of time. As webegin work next year on selecting permanent district station locations, it will eventually beadvisable to locate the Northeast District Station House further east.The Northwest, Southeast, and Southwest districts are adjusted to a less significant extent thanthe changes to the North and Northeast districts. However, the Northwest, Southeast andSouthwest districts’ patrol areas benefit from the additional neighborhood beats proposedcitywide.Finally, the Downtown District expands its territory by one beat, while the Business Districtremains intact and services are expanded to address increasing downtown and residential andbusiness growth.Illustrative information concerning all of the above can be found in  Attachment A: RPD Current Police District Map, Attachment B; RPD 2010 Police District Map, Attachment C: RPD Neighborhood Police Beat Map, and Attachment D: RPD 2010 Field Operations OrganizationalChart  .Presently the department is finalizing the action steps necessary to implement the RPDNeighborhood Beat Expansion and Police District Realignment Plan consistent with ourscheduled interim moves and RPD 2009-2014 Strategic Plan. I remain grateful for your supportof our efforts directed toward meeting our citizens’ high expectations and will continue to keepyou informed regarding our progress.
