The Shrewsbury Police Department is understaffed but has still managed to outgrow its space, the Strategic Plan for 2007-2012 drafted by Police Chief James J. Hester Jr. states.
Hester listed both issues among the department's weaknesses. Among the strengths, he listed police response time and commitment to officer training.
The plan also details the types of crimes committed over the past few years and compares Shrewsbury with similar communities on the number of officers and calls handled.
The complete plan is available online on the town's web site.
