BEND, OR -- The city of Bend was Oregon’s fastest-growing large city last year. Police Chief Mike Krantz says as the city’s population growth continues, so does the demand for police service calls. He explains there are a lot of expectations for his department regarding efforts at police reform. He says the ability to keep up with that, relies on having the resources and personnel to do so. Recruitment numbers are lower, which has forced him to reexamine some structural changes. Krantz says he will be making sure his patrol officers are effectively responding to the demand of calls by the community and meeting expectations.
