The City received the final report from the MPD Operational Assessment in January 2022. It describes:
- Staffing estimates for MPD’s Patrol Bureau based on workload
- Staffing needs in MPD’s other bureaus
- Observations and recommendations about MPD’s use of civilian staff, including alternative responders
- The need for new policies, e.g., on how much of each shift officers spend responding to 911 calls and about the use of one- or two-officer patrol cars
- A review of the City’s use of codes to describe and prioritize 911 calls for dispatch
- Recommendations to streamline how the City receives and dispatches 911 calls

Please note, this study was:
- Not expected to give concrete answers about the number of officers MPD should have.
- Not expected to show exactly what public safety functions MPD should or should not perform.
It will be one of many tools that policymakers have at their disposal in making those decisions.
