GLENDALE — A new policing strategy that will divide the city into four command areas is scheduled to take effect Oct. 11, police officials said. The new strategy is part of a reorganization of the Police Department spurred in large part by the deep citywide budget cutting early this summer and should lead to stronger ties between beat patrol officers and the communities in their respective districts, officials said. Under the new structure, Glendale will be divided into four command areas to be overseen by a lieutenant who will coordinate regular patrols and targeted enforcement to address specific community needs and trends, said Interim Police Chief Ron De Pompa.
