The Roxboro City Police Department has been recognized for completing the Law Enforcement Risk Review Process performed by the N.C. League of Municipalities.
At Tuesday’s city council meeting, NCLM Risk Control Director Tom Anderson presented Chief of Police David Hess with a plaque recognizing the department’s efforts in completing the process and adhering to recognized industry standards related to risk reduction.
The initiative was developed with the assistance of League’s Police Chiefs Advisory Committee and is supported by the N.C. Association of Chiefs of Police. The League’s Risk Review process is a voluntary program for police agencies and is being utilized by departments across North Carolina.
“Chief Hess has been consistently involved with N.C. League risk management efforts and has been outstanding when it comes to working to reduce risks for his agency and officers. The chief and staff were observed to be very professional in their day-to-day operations and interactions with the public,” Anderson said. “The chief and staff embraced the risk review process and made an effort to exceed expectations in a variety of areas reviewed.”
The law enforcement risk review process is designed to assess an agency’s adherence to best practices, court decisions and policies and procedures related to high liability activities in law enforcement. The goal of successful completion is enhanced public safety and validating that critical areas of the departments are meeting industry standards.
