The Public Affairs Division is led by Sgt. Justin Ludlow, two code enforcement officers, four school resource officers, two animal control officers, animal shelter staff, school crossing guards, and the Volunteer in Police Services (VIPS) program. The goal of the public affairs division is to identify and address community issues, concerns, problems, and crime trends which are quality of life issues. Public Affairs officers work with the patrol division to address ongoing problems in neighborhoods and business areas that require a repeated response. The staff utilize their training and experience to research and analyze problems and direct a variety of resources to address or eliminate the problem. They also are heavily involved in the organization and participation of community and civic programs to better educate and develop stronger relationships between us and the community we serve.
