One of the cornerstones of an effective and efficient law enforcement agency is community involvement. The Community First Initiative is composed of a variety of programs designed to enhance officer-public interactions in non-enforcement situations.

Numerous community programs are detailed in the following pages. We encourage you and those that you care about to engage with the police department through our community involvement programs. These are key to preventing crime, helping members of our community better understand our officers and helping build a foundation of trust and respect between officers and community members.

You can contact our Community Services Division for more information on these programs at (334) 793-0230.
