Strategic Plan

The long-range strategic plan (PDF) clearly defines and directs the department’s future. This plan is critical to our success as an organization and was developed with input received from the community we serve. We believe it is a valid reflection of our stakeholders’ concerns and desires. 

2019 updates and survey


The plan was last updated for 2013-2018 and does not include some current community concerns, such as addiction and street-level social issues. Part of the 2019 plan update involves a Public Safety Community Survey. All Everett community members and local stakeholders are encouraged to provide input by completing the survey below by Jan. 31. 

The survey results will be incorporated into the department’s updated strategic plan document, which will be available to the public this spring. The department intends to survey the community regularly moving forward to evaluate community satisfaction and priorities and guide their work. 

The survey is available online and can be taken through Jan. 31, 2019.

Implementing strategies & achieving objectives


As a cohesive organization, we are fully committed to implementing the strategies and achieving the objectives outlined in this plan and look forward to ongoing dialogue with all of our stakeholders to gauge our progress and direction. The department is acutely aware that collaboration is a vital component for our success and that of the community.
