A Commitment to Community
The Community Relations Division works diligently to develop and maintain open lines of communication with the public. Many programs foster close partnerships between officers and citizens, which encourage problem-solving techniques to proactively address the immediate conditions that give rise to public safety issues such as crime, social disorder, and fear of crime.
In addition to traditional police work, such as responding to emergency calls for service and traffic enforcement, Community Relations officers respond to “Quality of Life” issues that impact residents on a daily basis, such as motor vehicle complaints, disorderly groups and litter/blight concerns. This is accomplished by working closely with public stakeholders and the City departments.
