Crime Prevention

Crime Prevention officers work to promote positive police-community relationships, to identify crime risks, to educate residents and businesses on how to reduce crime risk and to establish and work with neighborhood crime watch clubs. 

As part of this unit, School Resource Officers work with students and schools in the city, serving as role models for young people and helping ensure our schools are a safe space for students and teachers.
