About the Unit
In order to successfully accomplish its mission of building strong relationships between the Police Department and the Summit community, the community Policing Unit organizes many different educational and outreach programs throughout the year. These programs allow the Department to further assist the residents of the City in areas such as traffic safety awareness, senior citizen safety, school safety and security, and school-based curricular enhancements, including D.A.R.E., driver's education, and seasonal safety presentations.
In addition to these programs, the Unit also enjoys a close working relationship with the City's Department of Community Programs. This relationship allows the Community Policing Unit to work with the City in planning events and celebrations which residents enjoy year around, including the annual Independence Day celebration, movies on the Village Green, and parades held throughout the year.
Through the organization of a variety of events, the Community Policing Unit offers City Residents the unique opportunity to interact with the Police Department and its officers on a personal level. This personal interaction serves to enhance the Department's mission to provide the highest quality of police services to the City as well as strengthen the Department's ability to promote public safety and quality of life.
