TIPS Connections - Lt. Tom Woods

Tom Woods currently serves as a division commander over training and personnel.
He is a graduate of the Southern Police Institute at the University of Louisville and holds a Master Peace Officer certification from the State of Texas. Woods participated in the research and implementation of community policing as the department's operational philosophy. In acknowledgement of their successful community policing initiative, Denton PD received the National League of Cities Award of Excellence for "Improving Service Delivery Through Community Collaboration". His work with community policing as a practitioner and administrator led to participation in various international projects and exchanges. Working for Project Harmony in 1994, he established the first police bicycle patrol in the former Soviet Union and introduced community policing to the police in Petrozavodsk, Karelia. In 1997, after the Genocide, and working for I.C.I.T.A.P (U.S. Department of Justice) he established and trained a one hundred-officer bicycle patrol division in Kigali, Rwanda. Image Through the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) he introduced the concept of community policing to the police in the capital city of Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia. Also in Republic of Georgia, he worked with Project Harmony to establish a network of non-profit resources to aid victims of domestic violence, and served on a team of domestic violence experts seeking to share strategies with government and non-governmental agencies to acknowledge and deal domestic violence in their country. Woods is a founding member and past president of the International Police Mountain Bike Association (IMPBA). He was the co-author of the Complete Guide to Police Cycling, and he has written various articles on community policing and bike patrols in law enforcement and bicycling publications.
