OUR PHILOSOPHY

We believe, everyone should be safe and prepared.  We believe, to prevent crime we must work together and that leads to safe communities.  We believe, trust between citizens, the community and  the police is vital for safe neighborhoods.  We believe, everyone should pay-it-forward through giving and volunteering. We believe, a police officer presence in schools and neighborhood’s is essential to Crime Free Safe Communities. 

We believe, it’s everyone’s responsibility to educate themselves about personal and property safety, disaster preparedness, and be safety aware and mindful of their surroundings at all times. We believe, when people practice crime prevention techniques and being safety aware and are mindful of their surroundings it will reduce their risk  of becoming a victim of a crime. We believe in community policing philosophies.
