How We Are Organized
The CSPD is made up of many different units and divisions that work together to meet the unique needs of both policing and the community. To make sure we are using our resources efficiently, each unit and division is assigned to one of two bureaus. Each of these bureaus then reports to the Office of the Chief of Police.
