Strategic Plan & Goals

The Duluth Police Department prides itself on innovation in policing and being an excellent place to work. We’re always working to improve our practices.

In 2016 we began the process of creating a strategic plan and the Duluth Police Department is consistently working towards the goals established during that process. The goals are in the following report: DPD Strategic Plan & Goals

In 2019 we provided an update to the public in the following report: 2019 Strategic Plan Update and in October 2021, the Duluth Police Department finalized its strategic plan. The report summarizes actions the department took to achieve this three to five-year plan initiative. You can read the full report here: DPD Strategic Plan Report
