Benchmark Cities

The Henderson Police Department is one of 30 law enforcement agencies who participate in the Benchmark Cities group.  It was originally designed in 1997 by a core group of chief's from around the country who had department size, population and demographics (college community) in common. Extensive surveys are completed each year and reviewed at an annual conference which allows agencies to compare themselves over a wide variety of criteria and ensures they are providing the best service possible to their respective communities.  The latest surveys are posted in the right-hand column and will be updated as soon as they are available.
