What is Community Policing?
Effective community policing has a positive impact on reducing neighborhood crime, helping to reduce fear of crime, and enhancing the quality of life in the community.
It accomplishes these things by combining the efforts and resources of the Police, local government, and community members. The partnership between these groups enhances public safety, awareness, and quality of life.
Crime Stoppers is a program in which members of the community, the media, businesses and police work together to solve crimes. Citizens are encouraged, via cash rewards up to $2,500, to provide information leading to the arrest and indictment of criminals. When a person calls Crime Stoppers to report on a crime, you do not have to give your name and you do not have to appear in court.
