Safety ~ Service ~ Honor
The Walnut Creek Police Community Policing Team was originally formed in May, 1997, to address the complex issues of delivering quality police services in a suburban area. While Walnut Creek has minimal violent, personal crime, it nonetheless has numerous quality of life issues as identified by its citizens, and poses challenges to its police force. The team is made up of two patrol officers, one motor officer, and a sergeant.
The goal of Community Policing is to accomplish the following within the Downtown Business District:
- Share responsibility between police and downtown business owners for public safety
- Develop and commit to long-term strategies to solve problems
- Empower business owners to take an active role in resolving issues.
- Be flexible enough to successfully use non-traditional methods.
Some of our projects have included coordinating efforts with the Downtown Business Association, Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Bar Owners, and the City of Walnut Creek Planning Commission to ensure an open line of communication is maintained. The Community Policing Team will also address crime trends, problem areas, quality of life issues within the Downtown and provide Crime Prevention tips to downtown businesses owners. Public Safety is our priority.
Team members work Wednesday and Thursday (7 am-5 pm), Friday and Saturday (4:30 pm-2:30 am)
