Community Relations Division

The Burlington Police Department seeks to increase cooperation, coordination, and collaboration between the department and other governmental agencies, non-profits, business stakeholders, and civilians in the community. The Community Relations Division is led by Capt. Todd Long with Lt. Mark Yancey and Granville Simmons. Our Community Resource Officer Bobby Davis  is responsible for several of the programs we have in the community.The goal of the outreach program is to effectively improve the quality of life for all members of our population by focusing on increasing communication between all sectors of our community, including the Limited English Proficiency (LEP) population, and the police department and enhancing the department's ability to serve our community through partnerships that more effectively and efficiently direct resources to the neighborhood level. Our vision will become a reality when we identify issues affecting the unique communties within our population and establish and maintain programs to address the needs in the community. We need to work closely with officers assigned to neighborhoods where LEP and other persons live to identify public safety issues that affect their quality of life. BPD has many active programs and involvement within our city, visit community relations to see what we do in the city.
