Cops in the Community

As a department, we realize we cannot address crime problems in this community alone. We have a duty and responsibility to involve members of the community in matters that impact the quality of their lives. We constantly work to renew and develop new community bonds to ensure that the people most impacted by crime have a voice in identifying and resolving problems in their neighborhoods.
