Policy Revisions & Proposals


The SLPD values our community’s perspectives and desires to incorporate your voice when enacting policing policies. Before implementing novel or significant policy changes, the SLPD seeks feedback from the public. Below is the process the Department has implemented to ensure a deliberate and thoughtful approach when drafting new or amending existing policies. 

Eligible Policies

Policy changes or new policies that meet the following criteria will be open for public comment:

  1. Policy changes that are identified as having a significant impact on the public, OR
  2. Review is mandated by law.


  1. Policies that are subject to public comment will be posted on this page. Policies will be posted and open for comment for 30 days.
  2. Submitted comments will be reviewed and the policy will be revised if necessary.
  3. The final policy will be published with an explanation of any changes made in response to the comment process.

We value your voice and welcome your feedback on our policies.  Please email us at [email protected].
