The Stockton Police Department Strategic Plan

The Stockton Police Department is an outstanding organization that also recognizes the need and opportunity for continual improvement.   

To that end, our Strategic Plan is the result of much collaboration among SPD staff.

We are excited to move forward in pursuit of the goals and objectives included in this strategic plan and are confident this plan's successful implementation will keep the SPD positioned at the forefront of contemporary, effective, law enforcement organizations nationwide. 

The Stockton Police Department will focus on accomplishing the following goals over the next three years:

  • Reduce crime and blight
  • Increase trust between the community and police
  • Recruit and hire a qualified, diverse workforce
  • Employ staff who are highly trained, knowledgeable, and prepared
