Crime can impact the community in many ways. It can endanger our personal sense of safety, damage public and private property, create fear and lower our quality of life.
Police and Community partnerships are opportunities to work collaboratively to improve the safety of the entire community. We can do this with information sharing, participation in Police volunteer programs, and heightened awareness. The safety of the community is a shared responsibility.
Atherton Police Department conducts several crime prevention activities:
Neighborhood Prevention Workshops
Officers and Police Leadership conduct neighborhood-level speaking engagements and meetings to discuss strategies, best practices, and tips to prevent burglaries and solicit resident feedback.
Community Safety Meetings
Police Leadership hosts community meetings to provide crime statistics and updates and bring residents together to address concerns and conduct Q&A sessions with the Chief of Police.
Vacation Home Visits
