The Neighborhood Police Officers are coordinated through the Crime Prevention Unit and consist of part-time, usually retired, police officers. The Neighborhood Police Officers prevent occurrences in their designated geographic areas by taking proactive measures to build relationships with citizens and empowering these communities to strengthen their assigned neighborhoods through education and information sharing.
The Neighborhood Police Officers are utilized to provide a faster, more personalized response to neighborhood problems, thus freeing Patrol Officers to focus on more directed patrol activities.
