Team Focus

We know from experience that neighborhoods have unique assets, nuances, and problems due to location, population, business, or physical layout. This is why we utilize "Team Policing." Team Policing helps us create relationships within the community we serve. Officers and supervisors are assigned geographic areas of the city and patrol those areas on a regular basis. They get to know the people, businesses, and community lifestyle of those areas and adapt policing strategies to best assist our neighborhoods in dealing with specific crime patterns, trends or other quality of life issues such as parking, noise and garbage.

But the efforts by the police are not stand-alone; the neighborhood watch, neighborhood associations, and crime prevention efforts are important for success to be realized. We are committed to a partnership with you and look forward to working with you in your community.
