North Precinct Community Police Team


Unlike Patrol Officers, the CPT are here to focus on the long-term, and often   chronic problems specific to individual neighborhoods. They patrol many times a day, checking and   re-checking known “hot spots”.

It is their job to know the residents in troubled apartments, to   recognize by sight, the “regulars” who congregate on the corner, and to   understand the ongoing problems and concerns of neighbors and   businesses.  Residents and business owners get to know and trust the   officers, making it easier to work together to resolve and prevent   problems.  CPT is about understanding ongoing issues that go back weeks   and months and taking steps to prevent problems before they arise.
