All employees are responsible for adhering to policy and keeping themselves current on the content of each policy. Each policy should provide some detailed guidelines as to expected behavior and action. However, the policy manual cannot address all situations that members of the department will encounter. Therefore, common sense exercise of discretion is required in those situations. The policy manual will be regularly reviewed, updated, and amended to reflect changes in law, best practices, and upon recommendations from staff and our policy partner, Lexipol.
