We believe the best way for us to solve problems together is to create personal connections through face-to-face contact. There are many ways that you can build relationships with the officers that are assigned to your specific community. Learning who your neighborhood officers are, volunteering with GPD, and of course participating in our programs and events are just a few ways you can help us create those connections that will help us make Greensboro a safer place.
Community Resource Officers (CRO) work with you to proactively combat crime through problem-solving and crime prevention initiatives. CROs are dedicated to identifying the issues specific to your particular area, to educating residents on crime trends currently affecting certain neighborhoods, and to developing and maintaining Neighborhood Watch programs. Find your assigned CRO by looking up your neighborhood HERE!
School Resource Officers (SRO) serve in middle and high schools throughout Guilford County. They are specially trained to work in their designated school to help prevent, deter, and investigate issues on-site. Find your assigned SRO by looking up your child’s school HERE!
Volunteer with us! We have a wealth of opportunities for those who are willing to share their time and energy with us! Our outreach events and programs are growing rapidly and we welcome your help. All volunteers must be at least 18 years old, complete an application, a driver’s history check, a criminal history check, and an interview. Additional details can be found HERE.
Get to know your designated patrol district and zone. The GPD is divided into 4 patrol districts, each with a commanding Captain. Each district has 3 zones, and each zone has a designated Lieutenant . The division of districts are not the same as the city council districts, but rather were implemented to support Neighborhood Oriented Policing. Zones are set by response time. This means that officers can respond to “High Priority” calls as fast as possible. Learn about the officers in your district and zone HERE.
