The members the Crime Prevention Unit (CPU) work daily to foster long-term partnerships between the department and the community. Their focus is establish and maintain ongoing relationships whereby the police and citizens work together to prevent crime in our community. This is the primary function behind the concept of "community policing". We are committed to the idea that through awareness and education, citizens become the extra "eyes and ears" of the police department. Citizen participation in crime prevention programs helps the police department prevent crime before it happens.
