Community outreach and engagement is often overlooked, but it is an important part of Police work. The media too often portrays the relationship between Police and their communities as combative, but the reality is that most departments work hard to engage, get to know and work with members of their communities in positive ways.
Individual officers engage in outreach, and most police departments also have specific programs dedicated to outreach. The importance of Community Outreach to building trust, reducing crime and combatting substance abuse problems cannot be overstated.
The Juno Beach Police Foundation is working to ensure that the Officers of our Police Department have what they need to enable them to reach out to the community, interact with those they serve and maintain the Quality of Life that we all seek.
