The Grand Rapids Police Department’s draft strategic plan will transform policing in our city. It calls for a neighborhood-based policing model that will provide measurable outcomes and help the department build and maintain trust with the community.
City Commission will hold a special meeting Aug. 11 on ballot language for two proposed citizen-initiated amendments to the City Charter.
City facilities are open. Visitors to all City buildings are required to follow health guidelines and wear a face covering. We encourage use of services online, by phone or by appointment. Digital Commission meetings will continue through the end of July.COVID-19 | Re-Entry Services by Department | Meeting Notices
