THE SIX PILLARS of 21ST CENTURY POLICING TRUST BETWEEN LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES AND THE PEOPLE THEY PROTECT AND SERVE IS ESSENTIAL IN A DEMOCRACY. IT IS KEY TO THE STABILITY OF OUR COMMUNITIES, THE INTEGRITY OF OUR CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM, AND THE SAFE AND EFFECTIVE DELIVERY OF POLICING SERVICES.

I

n December 2014, President Barack Obama formed a task force on 21st Century Policing to strengthen community policing and trust among law enforcement officers and the communities they serve. The task force produced recommendations, with action items around six main topic areas or “pillars:” Building Trust and Legitimacy, Policy and Oversight, Technology and Social Media, Community Policing and Crime Reduction, Officer Training and Education, and Officer Safety and Wellness. PILLAR ONE:

Building Trust & Legitimacy Decades of research and practice support the premise that people are more likely to obey the law when they believe that those who are enforcing it have authority that is perceived as legitimate by those subject to authority. Law enforcement culture should embrace a guardian mindset, with procedural justice as their guiding principal, while establishing a culture of transparency and accountability to build public trust and legitimacy. Officers should be encouraged to participate in nonenforcement community activities. PILLAR TWO:

Policy & Oversight If police officers are to carry out their responsibilities according to established policies, the policies

4

must reflect community values. Law enforcement agencies should have clear and comprehensive policies that aim to reduce crime by improving relationships, increasing community engagement, and fostering cooperation. Policies should include the use of force, including training on de-escalation and appropriate use of equipment; consent before searches, gender identification, racial profiling, and performance measures—such as external and independent investigations for officer-involved shootings and other use-of-force situations. A periodic review of policies and procedures along with nonpunitive peer reviews of critical incidents can lead to improved policing. PILLAR THREE:

Technology & Social Media We live in a time when technology and its many uses are advancing far more quickly than are policies and laws. Technology available to law enforcement today includes everything from body-worn cameras to unmanned aircraft to social media and a myriad of other products. The use of technology can improve policing practices, and agencies should adopt model policies and

best practices for technology-based community engagement that increases community trust and access. PILLAR FOUR:

Community Policing & Crime Reduction Law enforcement agencies should work with community residents to identify problems and collaborate to develop and adopt policies and strategies that reinforce the importance of community engagement in managing public safety. Communities should support a culture and practice of policing that reflects the values of protection and promotion of the dignity of all—especially the most vulnerable, such as children and youth most at risk for crime or violence. Communities need to affirm and recognize the voices of youth in community decision making, facilitate youth participation in research and problem solving, and develop and fund youth leadership training and life skills through positive youth/police collaboration and interaction. PILLAR FIVE:

Training & Education As the scope of law enforcement’s responsibilities

expands, the need for expanded and more effective training has become critical. Today’s officers and leaders must be trained and capable to address a wide variety of challenges including international terrorism, evolving technologies, rising immigration, changing laws, and a growing mental health crisis. Community members, especially with special expertise, should be engaged in the training process and provide leadership training to personnel. Equip officers to deal with individuals in crisis or living with mental disabilities, as well as instruction in disease of addiction, implicit bias and cultural responsiveness, policing in a democratic society, procedural justice, and effective social interaction and tactical skills. PILLAR SIX:

Officer Wellness & Safety The wellness and safety of law enforcement officers is critical not only for the officers, their colleagues, and their agencies but also to public safety. The support and proper implementation of officer wellness and safety is a multi-partner effort. For example, every officer should be provided with individual tactical first aid kits and training, as well as antiballistic vests; be required to wear seat belts and bullet-proof vests; and provide training about the consequences for failing to do so.


W

ith a team of 43 officers and 9 civilian staff, the South Burlington Police Department (SBPD) is guided by the philosophy of community policing and engagement. By systematically building partnerships and using problemsolving techniques, officers can address public safety issues such as crime, social disorder, and fear of crime. Over the past few decades, rates of violent and property crimes have dropped dramatically across the United States. Vermont was again recently reported as the #1 safest state in the country, reporting the lowest number of violent crimes and murders. Yet, our community faces the challenges of drug addiction, mental illness, and nonviolent crimes. THE WAR ON HUMAN TRAFFICKING Many human trafficking cases that have been identified in Vermont are tied to drug dealing. SBPD has been a leader in the identification of human trafficking and has worked closely as a member of the Vermont Human Trafficking Task Force. A new position, Human Trafficking Intensive Case Manager is being hired and placed in the SBPD, funded by a grant from the Victims of Crimes Act Fund. While housed in the SBPD, the case

PUBLIC SAFETY & COMMUNITY POLICING at the Foundation of The South Burlington Police Department manager will work with agencies and victims throughout the state. An important function for the case manager is to immediately provide direct support to victims of human trafficking, as they are discovered. This is a critical step in fighting this battle because victims are often sucked back into the underbelly of human trafficking, within hours of discovery. With a direct and immediate contact, victims can be given the support and services they need to break free of captivity. Victims can then receive ongoing support and seamless delivery of identified services throughout the state. SIX PILLARS OF 21ST CENTURY POLICING Last summer, Police Chief Trevor Whipple was invited to attend a conference at the White

House where the Six Pillars of 21st Policing were discussed. Bringing this information back, his team has been assessing the department’s needs and strengths. This will provide direction for continued support and training of officers, refined policies that apply to today’s needs, and identify necessary technology for effectiveness and transparency. The cornerstone of our public safety is the trust and transparency between our community and the SBPD. Following the recommendations of the Six Pillars, SBPD will continue to improve its policies, training, and use of tools to serve and meet the needs of our community. SUPPORT FROM OUR COMMUNITY While other communities across the country have been in

conflict against police officers and relationships have been strained, our South Burlington community has shown support of officers through food, letters of thanks, and donations. Last summer and fall, frequent gifts of pizza, donuts, sandwiches and goodies came from families, senior living groups, and local businesses. Last fall, after learning about the need for officers to have a personal first aid kit in case of serious injury, the Community Bible Church took up a special offering to meet this need. The generous $5,000 gift was enough to purchase a first aid kit for each officer to carry on their body, including a life-saving tourniquet. The donation also allowed for the purchase of a larger kit for each police vehicle. When asked about the outpouring of support, Chief Whipple said, “Each act of support has a meaningful impact on our men and women who work to keep this community safe every day. We can’t say thank you enough.” These two examples of support underscore the strength of our community/ police relationships. To learn more about the SBPD, visit WWW.SBPDVT.ORG.

WHAT IS CITY CENTER? SOUTH BURLINGTON’S CITY CENTER IS BEING BUILT AS OUR NEW DOWNTOWN—AS A COMMUNITY CENTER OF HOUSING, RETAIL, RESTAURANTS, PUBLIC FACILITIES, AND COMMUNITY GATHERING SPACES. SITUATED AROUND DORSET STREET, WILLISTON ROAD, AND SAN REMO DRIVE, CITY CENTER IS ALREADY A HUB OF ACTIVITY. NEW PRIVATE DEVELOPMENT BEGAN WITH TRADER JOE’S, PIER ONE, AND THE TOWNHOUSES AT MARKET STREET AND HINESBURG ROAD.

FINANCING

P ROJ E C T F O C U S : G A R D E N S T R E E T

Tax Increment Financing District In a Tax Increment Financing (TIF) District, property value growth (future development) pays for today’s public projects. In the fall, voters strongly approved the TIF Debt for Market Street reconstruction and City Center Park (Dumont parcel). The City can now begin retaining a portion of state taxes that are generated on new private development in the TIF District—75% of the new revenue will remain in the City to support public infrastructure projects. The City may now collect and hold aside these revenues for 20 years.

Garden Street will create a connection between Dorset Street and Williston Road, as a cross street to Market Street. This project includes intersection improvements at Williston Road and White Street, and Williston Road and Hinesburg Road.

PROPERTY TAXES ONTHE NEW DEVELOPMENT VALUE WITHIN THE TIF DISTRICT

Project Features: Bike Path separated from sidewalk and roadway. Alignment of the Midas Street and White Street intersection with crosswalks and full pedestrian signals. So you can cross the street, no matter which corner you are on! Full pedestrian signals at the Garden Street (Trader Joe’s and Healthy Living) and Dorset Street intersection, including in front of the U-Mall road.

AS A COMMUNITY, WE HAVE BEEN INVESTING IN ENERGY IMPROVEMENTS WHICH SAVE MONEY, REDUCE ENERGY CONSUMPTION, AND REDUCE OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT. HERE’S AN UPDATE ON SOME OF THE PROJECTS WE HAVE UNDERTAKEN IN OUR MUNICIPAL FACILITIES.

WASTEWATER TREATMENT FACILITY

HEATING & COOLING

A new high efficiency aeration blower was installed to right-size our current operation.

In 2013, a new HVAC system was installed at City Hall. This new modern system replaced the original system from 1981, controlled by mercury thermometers, which were becoming exceedingly difficult to replace due to environmental regulations.

Cost (after Efficiency VT incentive): $14,000 First year energy savings: $26,000 Return on Investment (ROI) period: 6 months Total annual energy saved: 231,310 kW Total carbon emissions eliminated: 251,000 lbs. annually Our 60-watt microturbine runs on biogas—turning process methane into plant heat or electricity, reducing electric and natural gas costs of the facility. The turbine also plays a major role in processing waste to produce a Class A bio-solid (improved from a Class B product in the past).

Cost: (after VT Gas incentive): $65,000 First year savings: $5,000 Return on Investment (ROI) period: 13 years In the fall, new space heaters were installed in Fire Stations 1 & 2, which had stopped working reliably. Cost: $44,000 Return on Investment (ROI) period: 15 years

Bio-solid production annual savings: $500,000 Cost of the turbine: $2,000,000 Return on Investment (ROI) period: less than 4 years + significant ongoing savings on operational costs

LIGHTS There are thousands of light bulbs on our city streets—in street lights and traffic signals. We have been replacing incandescent bulbs with new LED bulbs. This is an ongoing project and significantly increases the life of the lighting, reduces energy consumption and decreases maintenance costs due to less frequent replacement. Return on Investment (ROI) period: varies, average is 3 years

SOLAR AT THE LANDFILL Our newest initiative is the 2.15 MWdc project to be built on the closed and capped landfill. This project puts this property back into a benefitable use and is expected to be completed this year. The renewable energy generated will power the equivalent of 400 average Vermont homes. Cost: $0 Paid for by a public-private partnership with Altus Power America, Inc and Encore Renewable Energy. Direct savings over the 20-year lifespan: up to $5,000,000 SOUTH BURLINGTON LANDFILL SOLAR PROJECT

WHEELER NATURE PARK

In May 2016, the Open Space & Natural Area Program (OSNAP) Committee was formed by the City Council to prioritize park projects to be funded by the Open Space & Natural Area Enhancement Plan. The committee was asked to consider the phasing and grouping of projects; identify and prioritize improvements in Wheeler Nature Park and Homestead, Red Rocks Park, and the former Underwood property. During the process, the committee used the following guiding principles: • Make parks more accessible, visible, and welcoming • Improve park wayfinding and signage • Ensure ADA compliance in the parks, as appropriate • Meet the deferred needs in existing parks • Balance allocation between Red Rocks Park, Wheeler Nature Area, and the former Underwood property The Committee completed its work in the fall and was presented to the City Council. Projects were identified as ongoing, priority 1, and priority 2. The projects and their costs have been included in the 2018-2027 Capital Improvement Plan (CIP), the City’s 10-year plan for capital expenditures. The Recreation and Parks Department will now work through the implementation. The Open Space and Natural Area projects are funded from a voter-approved, designated half-cent in the property tax rate. $1.125 million will be invested into the parks based on the priorities set forth by the committee and City Council.

WHEELER HOMESTEAD • Improve accessibility to picnic area and add accessible picnic tables. • Replace bike racks. • Plant additional trees and re-seed wildflower areas.

PARTNERSHIPS BENEFIT OUR PARKS VERMONT YOUTH CONSERVATION CORPS (VYCC) The City has an ongoing partnership with the Vermont Youth Conservation Corps (VYCC), a non-profit conservation and education organization. Operating year-round, the VYCC teaches young people personal responsibility through meaningful work what connects us to the land, community, and one another. Our ongoing partnership provides summer crews who work in our parks to improve our trail system. Each crew consists of 8 youth with 2 team leaders. This summer, the crews will be working in Red Rocks Park and Wheeler Nature Park.

Recently, we expanded our partnership with the Winooski Valley Park District (WVPD) to include planning and project management in two of our natural areas—Red Rocks Park and Wheeler Nature Park, including the Wheeler Homestead. Winooski Valley Park District (WVPD) is a conservation land non-profit with over 1,750 acres under management. The agency is governed by a board of trustees comprised of representatives from the seven member cities and towns, including South Burlington. Partnering with WVPD is a cost-efficient strategy to maintain and improve our natural areas. This important work is made possible by the Open Space and Natural Area designated fund. (See page 29 to learn more.)

WINOOSKI VALLEY PARK DISTRICT (WVPD) The City owns natural areas which provide significant ecological, recreational, and aesthetic benefits, as well as critical wildlife habitat and watershed protection. Investing in the development and preservation of these areas is a high priority.

Community

Proximity to parks increases property values.

Parks protect and conserve biodiversity, while keeping our air and water clean.

Access to parks aids in the control of obesity, boosts the immune system, diminishes risk of disease, and increases life expectancy.

Well planned and well-maintained parks increase public safety.

Parks help build and strengthen community ties and bring diverse populations together.
