Community Policing Teams gone; Where to take concerns or issues now
With the elimination of our Precinct Community Policing Teams, we have received many questions from community members about where to turn when they have a question, concern or inquiry. We put together the following resource list to hopefully assist going forward.
As always, please let us know if you have any questions.
Stay safe and well.
About Crime Prevention Coordinators. Crime Prevention Coordinators (CPCs) are experts in crime prevention techniques. You can contact your CPC to inquire about general crime prevention tips, get involved or start a Block Watch group, request their presence at an upcoming community meeting and to discuss ongoing crime concerns in your neighborhood.
