I am pleased to present the Hot Springs Police Department’s 2023 Annual Report. As Hot Springs’ Police Chief, I feel it is my obligation to provide our community with transparent information regarding your police services.
The goal of this report is to provide information to the public about our department, including last year’s statistics, organizational changes, demographics, accomplishments, new programs, and much more. Our agency has been committed to community policing for several decades. I believe this year’s annual report reflects how our organizational culture and goals continue to be guided by that core philosophy.
It is our commitment to the citizens of the Hot Springs community to provide professional police services with transparency and accountability. I feel that this report is another way for our department to provide relevant and up-to-date information to the citizens that we serve.
In addition, this report shows the progress made by our department and our law enforcement partners concerning our efforts to address crime over the past three years. The three-year comparisons help everyone understand the work that is being put forth by everyone involved to make Hot Springs and Garland County a safer place. I hope that you find the information in this report useful and enlightening.
