WHAT DOES CPT DO?
Unlike Patrol Officers, the CPT are here to focus on the long-term, and often chronic problems specific to individual neighborhoods. They patrol many times a day, checking and re-checking known "hot spots".
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. Residents and business owners get to know and trust the officers, making it easier to work together to resolve and prevent problems. CPT is about understanding ongoing issues that go back weeks and months and taking steps to prevent problems before they arise.
WHAT DOES NCI DO?
The NCI Program partners Seattle Police Officers (SPD) to work directly with Department of Corrections Officers (DOC). The NCI teams work out of each precinct to work specifically with chronic offenders who are on active DOC supervision. By pairing both agencies to work together on a daily basis, they can share information and have a greater variety of options when contacting offenders.
