Community Engagement

Police Community Engagement Unit

The Community Engagement Unit comprises three specialty units, the School Resource Unit, the Public Information Office and the Community Relations Unit. Each unit has special and unique interactions with the community helping to promote safety and awareness as well as building a stronger relationship between the Division and the community.

Community Relations Unit records, develops, analyzes, organizes, and implements comprehensive brochures and programs designed to anticipate, recognize, and appraise crime risks and to initiate action to reduce or remove such risk. The Community Relations Unit is committed to the development and perpetuation of community crime prevention programs.

The Hampton Police Division always strives to establish close ties with and respond to the needs of the community.
