Community Policing Officers

As an officer involved in community policing you will have much to offer a local Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program. You may already be aware of traffic safety or personal security problems around schools in your community. Because of your knowledge of local neighborhoods and training as a problem solver you will be a valuable member of a local Safe Routes to School committee.
