WHAT DOES CPT DO?

Unlike Patrol Officers, East CPT are here to focus on the long-term, and often chronic problems specific to individual neighborhoods. They specialize in unconventional solutions to crime and community issues that traditional policing can’t effectively address.

It is their job to know the residents in troubled apartments, to recognize by sight, the "regulars" who congregate on the corner, and to understand the ongoing problems and concerns of neighbors and businesses. CPT is about partnering with the community to develop unique solutions to not only fight crime, but especially to reduce fear and build community.

NIGHTLIFE PROGRAM

East Precinct maintains close contact with nightlife/nightclub activities by having a CPT officer assigned to be the single point of contact for club owners, the public and other City departments.  That officer not only understands that unique needs and issues of nightlife businesses, but also maintains a close relationship with club management and night time patrol officers to address concerns early and systemically.
