Business Information Exchange

The Community Redevelopment Policing Unit is excited about our new Police and Business Information Exchange program. The concept is to bring Law Enforcement and Business owner/operators together to discuss criminal activity in the area, identify concerns and explore solutions which impact the community in a positive manner, and provide training opportunities.
