District policing finds success in Sun Prairie

In Sun Prairie, policemen would frequently rotate their districts and feel that they were unable to help people who were in trouble because there was not enough time to know the residents. Now Sun Prairie has begun district policing, which positions policemen in different districts for one year before rotation. The police have found that they are able to problem solve situations better, requiring less force and more interpersonal skills, especially for individuals with mental health disorders.
