Crime Prevention

Each Comunity Policing Officer is a crime prevention practitioner. These officers are responsible for obtaining and correlating informational  services or products relating to crime prevention from various resources.

The information is then made available to citizens and businesses in an effort to reduce crime and the opportunity of crime. These officers meet regularly with other agencies, groups, and organizations to teach crime prevention techniques in an effort to improve the quality of life for those individuals who reside and work in Pinellas Park.
