Reduce criminal victimization – Partnership with community
Call offenders to account – Quality arrests and investigations
Reduce fear and enhance personal security - Proactive/Preventative Patrol
Guarantee safety in public places - Appropriate levels of staffing
Use financial resources fairly, efficiently and effectively
Use force and authority fairly, efficiently and effectively
Satisfy customer demands – Achieve legitimacy with the community we serve
Problem-Solving as a rule – not the exception
The goal of the Police Department’s budget reduction strategy is to continue
to provide safety services primarily through preservation of Patrol Operation
positions. This two year reduction strategy will also allow us to continue to
meet critical needs such as 9-1-1 communications, investigations, and
support services, while making every attempt to protect associated revenues.

ITEM:
                        Staffing Levels

I M PA C T S
 In a study of “Crime in the United States 2004” the Federal Bureau of Investigation found
 the average police officer to citizen ratio for a city the size of Novato is recommended at 2
 officers per 1000 residents.
               •A January 2010 statewide survey completed by the California
               Chief’s Association with 178 agencies responding, showed that the
               average staffing ratio is 1.34 officers per 1,000 residents

               •Again, this comparison shows Novato falls below the state
               average with a ratio of 1.096 officers per 1,000 residents
 As the demand for services in Novato continues to rise, the challenge to maintain
 adequate service levels in the Patrol Bureau, which is the most critical and most visible
 function of the Police Department becomes more difficult.

               •The residential and commercial developments in Novato have added an
               average of 1600 calls for service annually yet we have not added
               additional staffing to address the impact this has on our resources.

ITEM:                     Staffing decision formula

     Staffing changes are connected to outcomes in the community. Crime reduction
      effectiveness is generally measured by the following staffing decision formula:


                                                                                Quality

When any one of these is changed, crime reduction and service delivery is affected. A key
resource in any department is the amount of discretionary patrol time – time available for
officers to make self-initiated stops, spend an extra minute telling a victim how to prevent
the next crime, or make a phone call to property owners, neighbors, or local agencies to
report problems or request assistance.
Use of Asset Forfeiture Funds to assist with funding of Major Crimes Task
Force.
Exploring grant opportunities for programs.
Eliminate Special Response Team / Crisis Negotiation Team.
Eliminate 1.0 Community Service Officer (CSO) Position.
Eliminate 1.0 Dispatcher Position.
Eliminate Traffic Program. Eliminate 1.0 Sergeant Position and 3.0 Officer
positions. Loss of associated revenue is significant.
