Community Policing

We followed TPD’s Squad Four as they worked in downtown Tucson on the night shift. They are working to build stronger bonds with the community by being present and engaging with people and businesses in what is now known as the District. The Tucson Police Department is one of 15 agencies selected to participate in the COPS program as part of President Obama’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing. “The work of the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing has become the foundation of a national dialogue on policing in America, and the release of the one-year press report highlights how the Task Force recommendations are at the front and center of this new era of police-community relations,” said COPS Office Director Ronald Davis. “This next phase of implementation will benefit the thousands of law enforcement agencies looking to move forward, and the best practices developed from lessons learned will result in implementation guides that can assist the field.”
