BLANCHARD PD IN 2020
Many changes were made in 2020 thus far, and in the remainder of this year many more changes are planned for the Blanchard Police Department. New faces, new equipment and a new commitment to the mission of community relations and community outreach.
Our goal is to become a better trained and much more balanced with the community which we're sworn to serve. That meaning that the officers are going to utilize an old method of policing which was proven to work, that of community-oriented policing. Where the police department works with the community in a more proactive than reactive method of policing.
The city negotiated with the FOP to increase the training mandates for the department, raising the required annual training to 96 hours per year, that is 70 hours over the required minimum of the State of Oklahoma. This potentially makes the highest training standard of any municipality in the entire State of Oklahoma.
In 2020 the department continued to maintain a proactive standard by keeping current technologies updated, and applying for new technologies. With that, the city purchased new 800 mhz radios to replace older radios and continue adding to the backup capabilities should equipment fail, or become unserviceable. New body cameras were delivered in 2020 to replace the older Axon body cameras deployed with the patrol division.
Among many improvement at the Blanchard Police Department is the online training portal the employees have access to, wherein continuing education credits can be obtained while the employee is learning how to improve themselves and the Blanchard Police Department. This portal is Blackboard, the same interface which is used by colleges and universities across the United States.
