Moultrie Leverages Open Policing Platform to Improve Trust and Transparency3 Feb, 2017
Moultrie, GA- The City of Moultrie and the Moultrie Police Department are excited to implement new technology to help improve transparency in policing. The system, developed by the technology company, Open Policing, enables the community to provide anonymous feedback regarding their experiences with law enforcement using a quick and easy to use web-based platform.
Moultrie Police Department is committed to continuous improvement and believes that listening to the public is an important part of building trust and transparency. “Our officers experience hundreds of interactions with our community each month and we believe that by giving the community a voice, we can learn, grow, and become better at serving our residents”, says Chief Frank Lang of Moultrie Police Department.
Open Policing is an ongoing feedback system that aggregates public sentiment and makes it publicly available to both the community and Moultrie Police Department so that the Department can improve its policies and practices. “Our goal is to help law enforcement agencies better engage their communities, build trust, and measure public sentiment through feedback”, said the organization’s founder, Patrick Johnson. “Ultimately, our goal is to help law enforcement agencies make the necessary interventions to better serve their communities and improve public safety”, says Mr. Johnson.
The City of Moultrie is one of the best small towns in America. “Our residents are engaged and care deeply about every facet of our community, and should expect excellence from every agency with whom they interact. The City is proud to be among the first in the nation to take proactive steps to leverage technology and innovation of this kind to give the community a voice.”, says Moultrie City Manager, Pete Dillard.
The Moultrie Police Department will participate in the Beta program rollout of the platform starting Feb 2, 2017.
