Community Policing

The SSL Police Department has created a system of geographic responsibility called Community Policing Zones (CPZs). Community policing is the philosophy that police officers and citizens can work together in creative ways to solve community problems such as crime, fear of crime, social disorder, and neighborhood conditions.

The city has been divided into six CPZs, corresponding with the six squads in the uniformed patrol division. Each squad is staffed with one Sergeant and four officers; each Sergeant has responsibility for one CPZ within the city. It will be the responsibility of patrol sergeants and their officers to make contacts within the community in their assigned CPZs, and to keep track of crime trends and unique problems for each CPZ.

It is important to know that CPZ assignments are based on the time of day a sergeant works and previous history regarding crime trends and calls for service in each CPZ. While the entire patrol division is responsible for coverage of the city as a whole, Patrol/CPZ Sergeants will ensure that proper communication occurs throughout the police department, to include the Community Resource Division (Crime Prevention, School Resource Unit and Crime Analysis), and that the appropriate resources are utilized for problem-solving efforts. This will ensure that problems will be addressed effectively, regardless of the time in which they occur.

Please refer to the CPZ map links below for exact boundary designations.

Community Policing Zone boundaries were designated using the existing Community Council boundaries. Below are the boundaries for each CPZ, the Patrol Sergeant assigned and their office numbers. Click on each individual CPZ to see a map of that CPZ alone.
