The Community Policing Section consists of three officers. These officers split their time between Community Policing duties and Quality of Life Neighborhood Enforcement issues. The officers meet on a regular basis with apartment managers, neighborhood watch groups and other civic associations. They give safety talks to senior citizens, special presentations at schools, and educate concerned citizens on how to implement and run an effective Neighborhood Watch Program. These officers also teach the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program to apartment managers in Dover. This course instructs property managers in areas of safety by environmental design, how to screen potential applicants and evict non-compliant tenants.
