Presentations and Programs

Education is one of the primary focuses for the Community Division. The Community Engagement Unit is committed to educating the community about safety and crime prevention through various presentations. The team regularly presents to schools, businesses and community groups.

Topics include:

  • Active Shooter Situations
  • Frauds and Scams 
  • Situational Awareness 
  • Neighborhood Watch
  • Cyber-Bullying 
  • Bullying

'Read to Me' Program

One way the Community Engagement Unit promotes education is through the 'Read to Me' program. Officers pack books into the department's Gator utility vehicle and visit children in neighborhoods, parks and other locations across the city. Children who read a book to an officer are given a prize. This is one way to promote reading skills, especially when school is out for the summer.

To schedule a presentation or for more information about programs, contact the Community Outreach Coordinator.
