Rotary Club of Chattanooga Hamilton Place hosted Chief David Roddy, Chattanooga Police Department as their featured speaker last week. 

"As Chief Roddy addressed the club and answered questions, he spoke to the three main pillars of policing across our community: 1) Community Policing (includes problem solving policing) - reaching out face to face and getting the community involved while seeking community assistance in identifying and solving problems collaboratively;  2) Intelligence-Led Policing - using strategic and tactical analysis to identify and solve problems; and 3) Focused Deterrence Policing - focused deterrence approach identifies underlying risk factors and causes of recurring violent gun injury problems, develops tailored responses to these underlying conditions, and measures the impact of implemented interventions.

  

"The Rotary Club expresses our sincere gratitude to Chief Roddy and his staff for their hard work, proactive efforts and service in keeping our community safe," officials said.
