What Does 2017 Look Like For The Delray Police Department?


We asked Delray Beach Police Chief Jeff Goldman to share what this year has in store for the police department.
He shared the department’s goals for the year:
1. We will continue to increase our staffing if funding allows. This will include sworn and non
sworn positions with a concentration on continued diversification of the department.
2. We will move forward with the next phase of the body-worn camera program with 75 more
cameras being deployed, which will equip all uniformed officers with cameras.
3. We plan to hire a service population advocate, who is a licensed clinical service worker, to
further our efforts with our service population, which includes the recovery community, the
homeless population and those struggling with mental illness.
4. We will continue implementation of the license plate reader camera system and surveillance
cameras, along with the completion of a camera command room.
5. We plan to complete and have the P25 project operational in 2017. This is an upgrade to our public safety radios.
