CPU fosters a spirit of cooperation between police and the community by helping to remove communication barriers between citizens and officers in order to establish mutual understanding and respect. Together we strive to form a more peaceful, caring and vital community built on shared respect by cultivating relationships with our neighbors through similar interests. To achieve these ideals, CPU is responsible for developing and implementing several specialized programs and events which promote safety, crime prevention, and outreach aimed at unification of citizens and officers for the sustainment of a more thriving community.
