The Future of Policing in Palm Springs

Event Details

To establish a police mission in step with the culture of Palm Springs, the Palm Springs Police Department invites our residents and businesses to help shape the department's future through a series of public meetings, February 15-19. Meetings will be held in each of the five City Council districts and Council members will be present. The sessions will take place in a structured town hall environment where everyone will have equal input. Community input will help to establish our mission and chart our path forward. 

The second part of the meeting is to establish our crime-fighting priorities by city area. Our job is to analyze problems and go after the underlying conditions allowing the issues to flourish. Police agencies have learned that to focus on everything simultaneously is to focus on nothing at all—mission dilution results in ineffective crime control. Instead, a laser-focused effort on specific problems can result in reduced crime and increased public safety. Increased public safety is our goal.

The series of meetings with our elected officials will be held on the following dates: 

  • February 15 from 4:00 to 5:00 pm, in Victoria Park next to 2744 N. Via Miraleste
  • UPDATE - Due to wind conditions, we are moving the town hall from Victoria Park to Fire Station 3, directly across from Victoria Park. The event will be in the fire station's backlot.
  • February 16 from 4:00 to 5:00 pm, Convention Center, 277 N. Avenida Caballeros
  • February 17 from 4:00 to 5:00 pm, Cahuilla Elementary School, 833 E. Mesquite Ave
  • February 18 from 4:00 to 5:00 pm, Palm Springs High School, 2401 E. Baristo Road
  • February 19 from 4:00 to 5:00 pm, Demuth Park, 4200 E. Mesquite Ave. 

Our crime analyst will provide you with crime maps, data on crime trends, and calls for service. If you can't make the meeting in your Council district, you are encouraged to attend another session on a date that works for you. 

The City of Palm Springs prides itself on being one of the most welcoming and inclusive communities in the nation – and with that in mind, I am confident these important neighborhood meetings will help us unite and find a path forward that ensures the highest quality of life in Palm Springs. 

So come, join your neighbors and elected officials, and help direct the future of PSPD. We are all in this together!
