The new Bend Police Chief is laying out his strategy for the police department.  Chief Jeff Sale says for one, he'd like to work with other local agencies like Redmond Police and the County to develop an information lead style. He says for example, as they spot trends they could respond within days instead of weeks; and in the more minor cases, he'd like the public to be able to use an online system: “So that certain crimes could be reported to us online, so that we're not sending officers clear across town for a minor theft to take that report. People will have access to us through the Internet. We'll still report those crimes and we can still evaluate the impact of those crimes on the community." Chief Sale is also taking a closer look at how the Traffic Enforcement Division is run. And if their approach to animal control issues need to change.
