Chief Swoboda here –

Creating a culture of mutual understanding and shared trust is a necessary part of keeping our community safe. That's why we've spent so much time listening to our residents, hearing different experiences, and looking for ways to bridge the gaps here in Fort Collins. There's a lot going on in the national conversation around policing. I want to make sure our local community members can feel confident in their FCPS officers, have opportunities to share ideas, and can access information about our existing efforts.

Tonight I'm going to share a look back at some of the changes and improvements here at FCPS, as well as provide insight into some of the long-standing policies and programs that many people have been surprised to learn. One example is our hiring process: we go to great lengths to hire people with compassion, integrity, and a heart for service, and then we invest heavily in their training and personal wellness to ensure that they have the skills and mindset to serve you each day.

Join us this evening from 5:30-6:30 to learn more and keep the conversation going!

Check your car seats carefully! A family came by recently with a car seat they had gotten from a neighbor. Everything looked okay until we went to buckle the baby in. Turns out the crotch buckle latch plate had cut into the harness strap over time. The car seat was no longer safe to use. Thankfully…
