Police, fire, Office of Emergency Management and the Longmont Emergency Communications Center may look a little different, but they’re still the Longmont Police and Fire departments.
On October 29, 2012, the Public Safety Department – police, fire and associated services – took on a different shape. There are now four new deputy chiefs (two for fire, two for police) under Public Safety Chief Mike Butler. A number of previously independent service groups have also been combined. These adjustments have been made to emphasize and promote teamwork and interdependent relationships for a true Public Safety Department. The reorganization also brings about a number of efficiencies and consolidations of service, and it is being accomplished within the existing Public Safety operating budget.
As police and fire departments across the U.S. change to meet the needs of the communities they serve, reorganizations similar to this one will prepare these departments for the future as well as provide for some exciting opportunities. These changes will provide greater efficiency in Support Services and Information Services and emphasize our commitment to improve and enhance the quality and quantity of information and data analysis.
