GPD Problem Solving

Problem Solving

Problem Solving – Utilizing proven methods such as Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (C.P.T.E.D.) and the “S.A.R.A.” method (scan – analyze – respond – assess), the Garner Police Department looks beyond the symptoms of crime and disorder and instead addresses problems by identifying and addressing the root nature so the problem is eliminated rather than temporarily abated. Garner Police Officers work with the community to take a strategic approach to resolving community concerns and addressing community problems to the satisfaction of those involved whenever possible.

Community Policing in Garner encompasses all that we do as law enforcement officers and employees on a daily basis – whether we are involved in education, enforcement, partnerships, prevention or problem solving, we are following the community policing philosophy.
