What are the goals of community outreach?

• Increase citizen motivation to report crimes.

• Build trust and familiarity with the community.

• Create opportunities in which to engage community members.

• Increase officer safety.

Achieving these goals can foster an understanding of expectations on both sides of the police officers and the community. Every community operates differently and will have their own unique set of goals. There have been some great community outreach efforts this year and we hope this one will be added to the list.
