Crime Prevention Unit
Our Crime Prevention Team was recently recognized as Outstanding Crime Prevention Unit for their hardwork and dedication for communities under a population of 100,000.

Our Crime Prevention Team attempts to reduce victimization and deter crime by target hardening.  Our team proudly forges community partnerships and proactively addresses public safety issues such as crime, social disorder and fear of crime.  

Our mission is to empower and equip our residents by educating and increasing awareness about crime-related issues in order to reduce opportunities. As our population is increasingly digital, the Department now offers the following means of digital communication:
  • Nixle — An electronic alert system where subscribers may receive email or text alerts of interest to them including traffic notices, community notices, special events, and crime alerts.
  • Facebook — Informs the community of various programs & activities offered by the Department
  • Twitter — Provides notice of time sensitive information to the community
  • Instagram — Provides notice of time sensitive information to the community

Officers in the unit are involved in programs such as:

  • National Night Out
  • VIN Etching
  • Home and business security surveys
  • Santa Cops
  • Summer Camp (for at-risk students)
