The Police Department recognizes that it has a role in solving community problems as well as in crime prevention. In order to facilitate these efforts, patrol officers have been assigned to specific areas of the City (Community Oriented Policing Districts). By working together, citizens and police officers can find ways to overcome crime and thus enhance the quality of life in this community.
You are encouraged to contact your district policing officer if you are having trouble dealing with a community problem. If unable to directly assist you, your district officer will attempt to put you in contact with an agency who can.
