According to SafeWise, Syracuse was ranked as the #2 safest city in Utah (take that, Kaysville!). The full report can be viewed at http://www.safewise.com/blog/safest-cities-utah/.
Also, for more than a year, Syracuse Police Department has been diligently working to achieve accreditation. The Utah Law Enforcement Professional Standards Accreditation Program, under the direction of Utah Chiefs of Police Association (UCOPA), provides law enforcement agencies of the state of Utah an avenue for demonstrating that they meet accepted, professional standards for effective and efficient operations. We submitted over 3000 pages of documentation for review, and an on-site evaluation was conducted by an UCOPA assessor. The UCOPA Executive Director has officially confirmed that our accreditation was approved.
Syracuse Police Department is only the 12th department in the state of Utah to achieve UCOPA accreditation.
