Community Policing

All Police Officers are active community policing practitioners and as part of the North Palm Beach Police Department philosophy, we work in partnership with the community to solve problems and protect life and property. A major component of fulfilling this philosophy is to work to prevent crime from occurring and preventing citizens from becoming victims of crime.
Community Oriented Policing is the outreach that encourages citizen involvement with the police, because truly, working together is the manner in which we can accomplish the goal of preventing crime in North Palm Beach.


The objective of Community Oriented Policing is to:

  • Provide crime prevention programs to the community that are designed to heighten citizens' awareness of crime.
  • Data driven directed patrol to displace crime from the community, assigned to where crime is believed to have developed.
  • Educate citizens in areas that can reduce the chances of becoming a victim
  • Encouraging the community to work with the police to help reduce criminal activity in the Village.

Community Oriented Policing provides a variety training programs with the goal of educating citizens of all ages in crime prevention.
