Connect with a Community Resource Officer

Community Resources Officers (CROs) work closely with residents to fight crime and improve the quality of life in the community. These officers work to bridge the gap between law enforcement officers and community residents through problem-solving and crime prevention initiatives. CROs regularly attend neighborhood meetings and help to develop and maintain Neighborhood Watch programs, carry out security inspections for businesses and residents upon request, present crime prevention programs and distribute crime prevention literature.
