Community Service Officers Credited For Faster Response Times For Police



COMMUNITY. I’VE ALWAYS GOT MY BODY
CAMERA AND RADIO. TISH AT FIRST GLANCE, KASEY
BROWN LOOKS AND SOUNDS LIKE A
REAL OFFICER. >> WE RESPOND TO BURGLARIES,
STOLEN VEHICLES. TISH: WITH A CLOSER LOOK, YOU
NOTICE SLIGHT DIFFERENCES. CASEY IS ACTUALLY AN OFFICER IN
TRAINING THROUGH THE COMMUNITY
SERVICE OFFICER PROGRAM. IT IS A GREAT PROGRAM FOR
COLLEGE STUDENTS, KIDS THAT WANT
TO BE POLICE OFFICERS. IT IS ALSO BECAUSE IT WORKS
AROUND OUR SCHOOL SCHEDULE. WE ARE ABLE TO GO TO WORK IN ON
THE DAYS WE ARE NOT WORKING, WE
TISH ONCE CUT DUE TO LACK OF
FUNDING, THE SACRAMENTO POLICE
DEPARTMENT REINTRODUCED THE
PROGRAM EARLY LAST YEAR AND HAS SEEN A BIG IMPACT DEALING WITH
LOW IT PRIORITY — LOW PRIORITY
CALLS. WE ARE SEEING THE RESPONSE
TIME FOR THOSE TYPE OF CALLS,
BURGLARY REPORTS, COLLISION
INVESTIGATIONS, THE RESPONSE
TIMES HAVE DROPPED SIGNIFICANTLY
DUE TO US ADDING THIS POSITION. TISH: IN A NEW REPORT FROM THE
DEPARTMENT, RESPONSE TIMES FOR
LO PRIORITY CALLS FOR FEBRUARY
2018 BEFORE THE PROGRAM WAS IN
EFFECT WAS CLOSE TO AN HOUR. WAIT TIMES FOR 2019 WITH THE
PROGRAM RUNNING, 36 MINUTES. I THINK IT’S EXTREMELY
IMPORTANT, NOT ONLY FOR US, BUT
THE COMMUNITY. WE ARE ABLE TO GO TO CALLS THAT
OFFICERS ARE NOT ABLE TO GO TO
RIGHT AWAY BECAUSE THEY ARE
GOING TO HIGHER PRIORITY CALLS. TISH: THE PROGRAM IS ALSO
BENEFICIAL TO THOSE LOOKING TO
ENTER THE FIELD OF LAW
ENFORCEMENT. REALLY BENEFICIAL FOR THEM TO
GAIN VALUABLE EXPERIENCE BEFORE
GOING THROUGH OUR POLICE ACADEMY
AND BECOMING A POLICE OFFICER IN
OUR IMMUNITY. TISH: GRADUATING POLICE ACADEMY
AND HAVING THE REAL BADGE IS A
LIFELONG DREAM FOR CASEY. THE CSO PROGRAM GETTING HER ONE
STEP CLOSER. >> BEING ABLE TO DRIVE OUT O
THE STATION AND KNOWING I AM
DOING SOMETHING IMPORTANT AND
GOING TO CALLS THAT NEED TO BE
TAKEN CARE OF AND HELPING
PEOPLE, IT HAS REALLY SHOWN ME, AND ENSUR ME THAT I WANT TO DO
THIS JOB. WALTER: THE CSO ACADEMY START
EVERY JULY, BUT THE 2019 CLASS
IS ALREADY FULL.
