The goal of our Community Outreach Unit is to bridge the gap between the Police Department and the community. Our staff addresses long term community concerns to create a safer community.
When the Community Outreach Unit interacts with their community, they begin to realize the problems within that neighborhood and better understand how to address them. They also form a personal relationship with many of the residents. This relationship helps them feel comfortable and establishes a sense of mutual trust and respect between citizens and the police.
One of the primary goals of a Community Outreach Officer is to improve the quality of life for the residents of the city. The Community Outreach Unit is involved in a wide range of police activities including but not limited to attending community meetings, attending community activities, and distributing crime prevention information.
