CSPD Chief Talks About His Department's Future

Sunday night, College Station's new police chief spoke to News 3 about his vision for the future of his department and crime fighting in the city.

Michael Ikner was sworn in as chief of CSPD in May, and in a recent presentation to the city council, laid out a new plan for his officers.

Included in that is an eventual change from 12-hour shifts to eight-hour shifts. Ikner said the current set-up is too taxing on his men and women and reduces their ability to be proactive and reactive to crime.

Ikner also will re-do the beat system at CSPD, assigning a sergeant and officers to specific areas of the city in order to better serve those regions.

Also launched: "Operation Reclamation," a plan to focus on specific areas of town where crime has begun taking hold. Currently, the operation is being focused on neighborhoods near Luther and Wellborn.
