East/North District Community Policing Team

The mission of our Community Policing Team (CPT) is to serve as a resource that effectively collaborate(s) with community stakeholders, external partners and units within our department in an effort to problem solve and address issues unique to these two police districts. Responsiveness to community needs and ensuring the department's accessibility to all members of the community are pivotal in fulfilling this mission. The CPT is responsive to the priorities of the districts and department based on current trends and activity.

The East/North District CPT is made up of one sergeant and five officers and they are housed out of the East District Station.
