Community Engagement Unit
About the Program
The Williamsburg Police Department strongly embraces the philosophy of Community Policing in all its daily operations and functions. Community policing is based on a partnership between the police and the community whereby the police and the community share responsibility for identifying, preventing, reducing, and eliminating problems that impact community safety and order. By working together, the police and the community can reduce crime and improve the quality of life in neighborhoods citywide.
In this effort, the community and police work as partners to identify and prioritize problems of crime and disorder and share the responsibility for the development and implementation of proactive problem-solving strategies to address identified issues. By mobilizing the efforts and resources of the police, the community, and local government, there is a greater likelihood of a successful outcome.
The Professional Services Bureau oversees the day-to-day operation of the Community Engagement Unit (CEU). It is comprised of three School Resource Officers (SRO) and one Community Engagement/Crime Prevention Officer.
