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 did not include some current community concerns, such as addiction and street-level social issues. Part of the 2019 plan update involved a Public Safety Community Survey of which all Everett community members and local stakeholders were encouraged to provide their input

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. 


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.
