2022 – 2026 STRATEGIC PLAN 

The Portsmouth Police Department’s Strategic Plan serves as a guide for the organization’s priorities over the next five years.  The plan was finalized in 2022, with input from our officers, as well as the community, and will help continue the department’s path forward pledging honesty, integrity, and pride to the public that the department serves and protects. The strategies identified in the plan hope to aid our department in the department’s quest to continually improve upon the services the department provides, as the department continues to progress as a modern policing agency. Included in this plan is the attainment of national accreditation through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement (CALEA) which will enhance community trust by enacting, maintaining, and following the highest standards of police professionalism.  This plan consists of five (5) focus categories that will serve as the vision for growth and advancement of the Portsmouth Police Department.
