Each patrol division has a Community Interaction Officer (or “CIO”) that is assigned to assist the community with crime related issues that are not effectively handled by a call to 911. These can include anything from long-term disputes with neighbors to educating the community how they can best get police services possible. The position also includes handling a wide variety of prevention and outreach opportunities. If you have a question that is not answered by the following information or just want additional information feel free to contact me and we’ll see how NPD can assist you.
