Focus on their issues (PCF's?)
Quarterly Reports

The strategic planning process involves the development of action steps by local commands to help achieve each goal and strategy. The action steps that will be designed and implemented by each individual command will be reflective of each command’s unique operating environment and available resources. The goals, strategies, and performance measures outlined in the strategic plan are focused on making significant progress through increasing in-view patrol and reducing fatal collisions due to DUI, improper turning, unsafe speed, and noncompliance with occupant restraint laws. In addition, increased compliance with cellular telephone and texting while driving laws is sought. Each Command is required to submit quarterly reports on all strategies for which there are approved action plans to their appropriate Division.

It incorporates a bold vision for the future that is aligned with the CHP’s four primary strategic goals. The strategies chosen to help achieve those goals are realistic and relevant to our operations. The performance measures chosen to gauge success in achieving those goals are easy to understand.
