Community Relations Unit
COMMUNITY RELATIONS UNIT
Community Oriented Policing and Crime Prevention is a fundamental responsibility of every departmental employee. The Community Relations Unit acts as a focal point for police efforts to create and maintain a climate of cooperation and trust, to gather information about citizens' concerns, and to respond effectively to them.
The mission of the Community Relations Unit is to do everything possible to keep channels of communication open between the Police Department and the public, and to assure that developing or potential problems are addressed constructively. The department’s awareness programs will focus on crime prevention based on annual crime data by crime types and geographic areas as well as address community perceptions and misperceptions of crime.
The programs are designed to educate our community members on how they can lessen their chances of becoming a statistic. While these programs are only a small part of a comprehensive law enforcement effort, they focus on the prevention of crime from available crime data reports where improvement is essential to better serve its community.
