Community Policing in Garner, NC
The Garner Police Department participates in partnerships that are intended to bring additional resources to bear on public safety issues in the Town through collaboration on mutually benefitial issues. The following are some examples of partnerships we have participated in:
Prevention – One of the hallmarks of an effective law enforcement agency is the ability to prevent crime before it occurs. The Garner Police Department utilizes efforts focused on crime analysis and prediction, deterrence (including enforcement), and education to decrease crime and increase quality of life for our community.
Problem Solving – Utilizing proven methods such as Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (C.P.T.E.D.) and the “S.A.R.A.” method (scan – analyze – respond – assess), the Garner Police Department looks beyond the symptoms of crime and disorder and instead addresses problems by identifying and addressing the root nature so the problem is eliminated rather than temporarily abated. Garner Police Officers work with the community to take a strategic approach to resolving community concerns and addressing community problems to the satisfaction of those involved whenever possible.
Community Policing in Garner encompasses all that we do as law enforcement officers and employees on a daily basis – whether we are involved in education, enforcement, partnerships, prevention or problem solving, we are following the community policing philosophy.
