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.
Some of the events where you will see our community policing officers in action include:
Country in the Park
National Night Out Against Crime
Childrens Safety Festival
Annual Holiday Parade
Citizens Police Academy
Coffee with A cop
They also participate in school safety and law programs, in addition to other community engagement activities with our residents and business partners.
