DuPont Police Department Recruiting Video

From the Desk of the Chief:  The DPD Recruiting Video is Here!

Over the past two years, Team DPD has been working hard on trying to update and modernize every aspect of your police department.  This effort has included embracing new, best practices, policy updates, better equipment, increased training, and aggressive but targeted hiring practices.  In 2020, being awarded our first-ever federal hiring grant from the Department of Justice, and instituting our body-worn camera program were important first steps in this overall effort.  We have been able to make progress with the support of city leaders, our partner agencies, and most importantly – this incredible community.  However, change doesn’t happen overnight.  The past year of COVID restrictions has created challenges in connecting with the public.  As part of this strategic initiative, we have been exploring ways to better provide information to those who want to know more about the DuPont Police Department.  We are updating our website and utilizing mobile device access (exciting news on this is coming soon).  We have completed a few video vignettes in our effort to embrace more remote technology.  This includes a recruiting video, which will be featured on our website and other locations.  I’m proud to share this recruiting video with you, the first of its kind for your police department.
