Reducing Officer Injuries

Several years ago Duluth P.D. along with 17 other police agencies participated in a national study with the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) on reducing officer injuries.  At the completion of the study recommendations to reduce officer injuries were made.  We are seeing an improvement and I am proud of our staff for making a positive difference.  The people at D.P.D. make my job easier by working to be the best they can be.....

I received this note from the City's Loss Control Manager this week:

I would like to congratulate the Duluth Police Department on the amazing accomplishment of having NO time-lost injuries yet this year!  I’ve included a graph below to show just how notable of a change this is.  You’re throwing off the average of the entire City to make everyone look good on our state & nationwide safety stats.  Your injury numbers, severity, and time-lost stats are way below average for a local government police department.
