The Shelton Police Department has released a Professional Standards Report for 2018, which provides a variety of performance data on various policing matters, including complaints, internal investigations, claims, pursuits, officer collisions, use of force, and bias-based policing. This is the first year Shelton PD has conducted the report as part of the accreditation process through the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs (WASPC).

“I am very proud of the data we have for 2018,” Said Captain Mike Fiola. “It demonstrates that our officers are policing in a manner consistent with the department’s mission, vision, and core values. This information allows us to identify trends and areas of concern so that we can make the appropriate
policy adjustments, and pursue high priority training opportunities.”

The Shelton Police Department has established the following mission, vision, and values:
MISSION: To provide excellent service and protection through leadership and partnership with the community.
VISION: To make a positive difference.
VALUES: Loyalty, Dedication, Respect, Service, Honor, Integrity and Personal Courage.

There are a number of notable findings in the 2018 report, including the increase in the number of incidents handled by the Shelton PD, and the decrease in the number incidents in which officers used force. In 2017, Shelton PD responded to 10,925 calls for service – 30 of those incidents resulted in the use of force (0.003% of all calls). In 2018, Shelton officers responded to 13,841 calls for service (a 27% increase over 2017) – 38 incidents resulted in the use of force (0.002% of all calls, a 0.001% decrease
from 2017).

Based on the 2018 report findings, Shelton PD has identified the following training priorities for 2019:

  • Defensive Tactics
  • De-escalation
  • Use of Force/Deadly Force Policy Refresher
