COMMUNITY POLICING

COMMUNITY POLICING

The Community Policing Division was established in 2000 to cultivate a partnership between the community and the New Milford Police Department.  There are many ways that our Police Department reaches out to the public even before being called for a specific problem.  This outreach is done through presentations to our neighborhood organizations  as well as through  presentations  in our schools for both students and parents.  Allowing access to our Police Department, through Community Policing,  by means of direct interactions with the public is essential for good Police-Community relations which will ultimately lead to positive Police-Community engagement.  

Some of the events The Community Policing Division currently runs are:

  • National Night Out
  • Safely back home
  • The New Milford Jr Police Academy
  • Coffee with a Cop
  • The Citizens Police Academy
  • Adopt-a-Cop
  • L.E.A.D
