Police and community partnerships serve as the foundation for police agencies that have embraced the philosophy of community oriented policing. as members of the community we serve, we show our spirit both on-duty and off-duty giving our support to and participating in numerous special events and fundraising activities that benefit those we serve. when department members take an active role in village events, ti provides us a unique opportunity to interact with the community and create a stronger bond with residents, business owners, and visitors.
