The Crime Prevention and Community Relations Unit provides the Buena Park community with outstanding programs such as Neighborhood Watch, home and business security inspections, Halloween safety, police station tours, and emergency preparedness. This unit is also largely responsible for the success of our department’s annual Open House.
The Crime Prevention Specialist, a civilian police department employee, is the primary point of contact for those seeking information about the department and requests for community assistance.
In addition, this unit is responsible for the issuance of alarm permits, which allows the department to track legitimate and false alarms. Also the Crime Prevention Specialist coordinates the police department’s participation in the annual Special Olympics Torch Run, as well as the Special Olympics fund-raising “Tip-A-Cop” event held at a local restaurant.
Another worthwhile project of this unit is the annual “Project Give-a–Christmas”, in which truly needy recipients of the community are identified and useful donations by local businesses are handed out during the holiday season.
The Crime Prevention Unit is heavily involved with the Neighborhood Improvement Task Force (NITF), the Citizens Assisting Police (CAP’s) volunteers, and the Police Explorer Program.
