2022 Summer Strategic Plan

June 3, 2022 7:31 AM

Good morning East District,

June 1st was the beginning of the 2022 Summer Strategic Plan at MPD.  This year the priorities of each district are the same across the department.  Those focus areas are: Shots Fired, Stolen Autos and Hazardous Driving.  Three corridors were chosen based on crash data for hazardous driving enforcement which are: E. Washington Avenue, Mineral Point Road and the Beltline.  Obviously these focus areas will not preclude officers from responding to calls for service or addressing other issues within the district or traffic concerns in other parts of the district.

In 2022 the goal is to reduce each crime priority by 15%.  The goal in regards to the traffic priority is to reduce injury crashes by 15% as well.  MPD will employ multiple strategies driven by data analysis to cool hotspots, mitigate crime trends and arrest those high-rate offenders committing focal crimes.  Part of the analysis will be to measure the amount of time officers are able to dedicate to strategies meant to reduce the 2022 priorities.

Due to strategies used to meet the goals of the strategic plan, you may observe increased police presence in your neighborhood or areas that you frequent in the East District.  I encourage you to call police if you witness criminal activity in your community.  I know that many have traffic concerns outside of the three roadways mentioned above.  If you have traffic concerns please report those at the following website:

If you have questions please feel free to reach out.  The summer strategic plan will end October 31st, 2022.  A period of data evaluation will follow the conclusion of the plan.


Thank you and have a great day!

Captain Jamar Gary

East District
