Community Oriented Policing

What is Community Policing?

  • Community policing focuses on crime and social disorder through the delivery of police services that includes aspects of traditional law enforcement, as well as prevention, problem-solving, community engagement, and partnerships.


    The community policing model balances reactive responses to calls for service with proactive problem-solving centered on the causes of crime and disorder.

  • Community policing requires police and citizens to join together as partners.


The Fox Valley Metro Police Department embraces community oriented policing by establishing and maintaining partnerships with stakeholders throughout the community.
