Police Community Relations frequently provides safety lectures and demonstrations to youth groups, preschools, neighborhood watch programs, businesses and faith-based organizations.
Community Relations is dedicated to the goal of bringing the community and the Longwood Police Department together to solve community problems. Community Relations routinely develops alternate methods of policing.
These alternate methods offer viable solutions, introduce new tools and encourage the community to problem solve hand-in-hand with the Police Department.
The goal of Community Relations is to reduce the number of repeat calls for service by offering a long-term solution to the problem. Incorporating a community policing philosophy (PDF) helps to enhance the quality of life of the citizens and makes the community a safer and more pleasant place to reside.
