"PRO ACT "- Professionalism,
Accountability, Coordination and Teamwork.
In support of the mission of The Richland
County Sheriff's Department, we have built an inter-departmental
communication and operating system that holds all personnel to a high
standard and expectation of success; based on these three fundamental
principles. This premise is based upon the COMPSTAT philosophy utilized by
the Los Angeles and New York Police Departments.
The Pro ACT concept is built upon the analysis of crime statistics and
data. It also promotes proactive crime prevention initiatives. Each
division, unit and officer is accountable for preempting crime in our
communities, through community awareness, education and proactive policing
strategies. Each division, unit and officer is accountable for addressing
the fear of crime and the crimes that occur though applications of
interactive and proactive policing.
The uniform personnel and regional investigators are assigned specific
communities and responsibilities. The accountability for the development
of community partnerships is shared by the regional command and the
community services division. The internal collaboration between the
regional command and community services division increases community
awareness programs, community education programs, enforcement operations
and reduces crime.
