Crime prevention is a public service provided by your Saint John Police Force, in partnership with the community, aimed at preventing crime and promoting safer neighbourhoods. Safer neighbourhoods contribute to an enhanced sense of community that often attracts businesses, immigration and residential development to the area.
Community police officers work collaboratively with citizens, schools, businesses, community groups, and other organizations to identify and resolve issues that affect the wellbeing and livability of the entire neighbourhood. Police officers need your help to solve problems, prevent crime, and protect your community.
The primary focus of Community Police Officers is crime prevention, however, the unit is also involved in law enforcement projects targeting prostitution, bar district enforcement, and criminal activity occurring on/off school property.
