NPD is a leader in community policing and outreach. We participate in a number of collaborative community partnerships to address how we respond to individuals experiencing mental health crisis, how we can work to address the opioid epidemic in our community, how we respond to individuals reporting a sexual assault, and how we respond to and provide services to people reporting domestic violence. In addition to these critical collaborations, we love to be out and about in our community. Officers walk our busy downtown and chat with people, bike along the bike path, attend community events, host Coffee with a Cop, teach as part of our Citizen Police Academy, and even spend time with kids at our annual youth fishing derby. Our staff members also engage in a wide variety of charitable events to support important causes in our community.
