Community Policing

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. 

The following are some programs and initiatives targeting crime prevention and reduction:

Lock It & Pocket Program

Focuses on reducing thefts of vehicles and thefts from vehicles. The SJPF is reminding you to lock your vehicle and pocket the keys!

Respect program

Focuses on reminding young people in both high school and middle school about the social, physical and legal consequences associated with certain risk behaviors.

Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) Program

Focuses on teaching kids how to effectively resist drugs and violence by teaching them the personal skills and techniques necessary to deal with peer pressure and media influence.
