Community Relations

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 goal of the outreach program is to effectively improve the quality of life for all members of our population by focusing on the the following:
  • Increasing communication between all sectors of our community, including the Limited English Proficiency (LEP) population, and the police department
  • 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 achieve the following objectives:
  • Identify issues affecting the unique communities within our population. 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
  • Establish and maintain programs to address the needs in the community
