Community Policing

An Interactive Process

Community policing is an interactive process between our officers and the community – residents, businesses and visitors. Together, we develop ways to identify problems and concerns, and then determine the right response to those problems, utilizing a wide range of methods and resources available. We also assign officers to their own “community areas.” We divided the City into 16 Community Policing Partnership areas; each officer is assigned to one or more of these areas. It is a great way for our officers to really get to know the neighborhood and community.
