DEKALB, Ill. (AP) -- DeKalb Police Chief Gene Lowery is calling for more police officers, reinstating a K-9 unit and other program as part of a series of goals for 2014.

The Daily Chronicle reported Tuesday that Lowery stated his goals in a report called "20/20: Vision for the Future." It has 20 initiatives for the DeKalb Police Department's next 20 months.

They include more officers for the increase in calls for services.

Lowery projects that the department will have handled more than 42,000 calls by the end of the year. That's a 6 percent increase from last year. Lowery has advocated for more officers before, something that DeKalb Mayor Kris Povlsen supports.

Lowery says he'll also seek grants and community support for any added costs in his plan.
