BEND, OR -- Bend Police Chief Mike Krantz supports the idea of Community Policing. He says it’s a philosophy that says how do you police in a community without seeming like you are just enforcement tool. Krantz says Bend police have strong community partnerships. He says he asks his officers to spend 20 hours a year in non-enforcement, non-call related engagement, in relationship building. Krantz says this helps build trust between the police and communities they serve.
