A big thank you to Bend Police Chief Jeff Sale and Lieutenant Chris Carney for presenting to our group today. We had about 20 people attend to hear how government can no longer afford to operate as it has in the past. The Bend Police Department is implementing changes to respond to today’s environment. We were all able to take away important lessons in change management.
The presentation concluded with a sneak peek at the new Barbecue Car. This is a surplus patrol car converted to a BBQ on wheels. The car will make appearances at community events to raise money for the K-9 program and provide an opportunity to raise awareness of public safety programs.
