Police & Community, Together Building a Safer Tomorrow

198997328_4041748162576751_497642912976888956_nThe Community Relations Unit strives to build strong, trusting relationships with the citizens of the Rose City.  Through these relationships, the Community Relations Unit works closely with other divisions of the Police Department to address public safety concerns.  Within the Madison Police Department, “Community Policing” is a philosophy and practice that is carried out by all officers of our agency.  In brief, everything our officers do has the concept of community policing in mind.  Officers serve the community with dignity and respect, in addition to the unit addressing chronic issues and quality of life concerns.  Community Relations Officers are available for presentations to the public as well as community and school organizations, institutions and groups in various topics such as those listed below. The Community Relations Unit can customize and/or create a new presentation as requested.
