Community Oriented Policing
Commander Nannette Kistler, email@example.com is responsible for the precinct, which is further divided into two Districts (Districts 3 and 4 for East Precinct). More information on the staff responsible for those Districts is listed below.
Beat jurisdictions are also divided on neighborhood association lines so that neighborhood associations are not broken up. Some beats will naturally include more neighborhoods than others but no established associations will be divided into more than one Beat.
The advantage of this type of structure is the increased personal accountability and responsibility by the Commander who oversees the Precinct,the Lieutenants that oversee a District, and the Patrol Sergeants and Officers who are responsible for their individual Beats.
Neighborhood Police Officers
Each Precinct now has two Neighborhood Police Officers (NPO), each assigned to a district. The NPO’s are the liaisons to the citizens within their district and are available to meet with neighbors to discuss crime issues, livability issues, attend community meetings and to answer questions about crime trends and prevention. These officers are the main contact person for a citizen within a district to go to when there are crime issues or other concerns that the police department can assist them with. These officers work cross departmentally as well to assist citizens with problem solving strategies as well.
