The Community Affairs Office seeks to effectively engage the community and citizens to strengthen Public Safety and community partnerships, facilitate a joint effort in solving problems which affect our community, and foster enhanced trust, communication, transparency, and mutual respect.
Officers help foster a strong working relationship between the Department and the community it serves. Officers work with homeowners’ associations, community organizations, advocacy groups, public and private schools, faith-based organizations, and individual residents to promote partnerships that are mutually beneficial.
As a result of these working partnerships, the officers are able to develop pro-active crime fighting projects that are jointly undertaken by Department personnel and citizens.
The Community Affairs Office has many programs that help build a bridge which enables residents and law enforcement to communicate, collaborate, and work together to build safer, more caring communities.
