Community Oriented Policing Unit
Led by Captain Thomas, Lieutenant Ravine, and Sergeant Pritchard. Community policing officers continuously work on developing and creating partnerships between the community and the Police Department in an effort to improve the quality of life for all within the Town of Davie. The unit consists of one sergeant and six Officers.
The officers utilize bicycles as part of their community policing duties which allows the officers to interact more easily with residents and be more approachable than police officers in patrol cars. Their high visibility and easy accessibility promote greater community involvement and communications between police officers and members of the community.
The officers assigned to this unit have specialized training and are certified through the state to conduct security surveys for residential and commercial properties.
They are responsible for addressing and resolving identified issues or problem areas within our community by utilizing proactive, problem-solving skills.
Members of the unit also participate in many community and town-sponsored functions throughout the year.
