Community Policing Coordinators

Six civilian Community Policing Coordinators are assigned to six peninsula based community policing centers at properties city-wide. The Coordinators act as a centralized resource for community members in need of assistance and work closely with other neighborhood stakeholders to develop suitable programs and strategies to effect positive, long-term changes in their neighborhood.

Duties of the Community Policing Coordinators are as diverse as the neighborhoods they serve.
Some examples of the work our coordinators do:

  • Manage the hotspots and disorderly house programs in collaboration with the Neighborhood Prosecutor. 
  • Meet monthly with representatives of other City Departments and focus their collective resources on addresses with an inordinate number of public disorder complaints or a single drug complaint. 
  • Participate in the Community Partnership for Protecting Children a collaborative effort to help at-risk kids in the City's poorest neighborhoods. 
  • Staff the Community Policing Centers. Centers are generally staffed during normal business hours Monday-Friday,
  • Coordinate activities for low-income or at-risk youth.
