TO PROTECT WITH COURAGE

TO SERVE WITH COMPASSION

Community Response Team

The Community Response Team (CRT) uses two approaches to respond to the concerns of citizens a the precinct.

First, directed patrol uses uniformed CRT officers to respond to high crime areas of a precinct or areas with specific problems. The greater police presence in these areas  helps to  prevent crime and increases the chances of catching criminals. With this approach, the precinct commander has more flexibility to respond to precinct crime trends in the precinct without affecting other services to the community.

Second, the expertise of the CRT Team’s "plain clothes"/ undercover officers is used to respond to precinct drug problems. The approach can be very effective because officers work closely with the community receiving complaints about drug houses and drug dealing. The CRT Team also investigates street level prostitution, disorderly houses and illegal liquor and cigarette sales.
