The Police Department operates under the Community Policing Approach. Every effort is put into this program, which involves citizens taking a proactive role in working with the Police Department and other agencies to protect our community and make our neighborhoods safer and healthier. The Community Policing Approach to law enforcement recognizes the resource limitations in the criminal justice system and addresses that issue by involving residents and business owners in crime prevention. Using the Community Policing Approach, the Police Department and citizens come together and actively work on solutions to identify and solve problems.
Under the philosophy of Community Policing, the Department uses problem solving to address the issues of crime and decay and join in partnerships with businesses, schools and citizens to not only prevent crime, but decrease the fear of crime in the Parker community.
