Our Community Response Unit (CRU) was created to solve problems that arise in the community. CRU focuses on establishing and maintaining direct community contacts to foster grass root partnerships to address and resolve quality of life issues.
The three branches of CRU are Crime Prevention, Community Policing, and Construction Special Investigations.
Crime Prevention focuses on educating and training our community through programs, partnerships and initiatives. Community Policing establishes community safety teams at providing service and support through interaction and effective communication with homeowners’ associations.
