The main focus of the Community Engagement Unit at the Police Department is Community Relations and Crime Prevention.
The St. Cloud Police Department is committed to establishing close ties and responding to the needs of the citizens of St. Cloud. We accomplish this by the implementation of community based programs and correcting actions or practices that may contribute to community tension or grievances.
The main function of this section is to establish and maintain a liaison with the residents of the City of St. Cloud and community organizations. This is accomplished by providing FREE programs to City of St. Cloud residents such as:
Drug And Alcohol Awareness
The community relations officer meets and works with these various groups and organizations on a monthly basis and advises them of criminal activities or trends occurring in their respective areas.
The St. Cloud Police Department is committed to development, implementation and perpetuation of comprehensive and proactive programs which anticipate, recognize and appraise crime risk and which initiate actions to remove or reduce those crime risks.
This is the organizational component which is responsible for coordinating and implementing crime prevention activities for the police department.
