The Office of Community Engagement is a Division of the Greensboro Police Department (GPD). Our mission is to build and foster positive police-community relations through communications, programs, partnerships, and volunteer opportunities based on community needs. We believe that the best way to improve public involvement is to help create personal connections between our citizens and our officers. We are charged with developing new strategies, services, opportunities, and programs that will build bridges between the GPD and the communities that make up the City of Greensboro, with information flowing both ways.
We value community feedback as the most integral part of what we do. The partnership between police and the public is crucial to fighting crime. We can’t do this without your ideas and concerns. We strive for ALL to reach beyond the complexities of ethnic, lifestyle and religious differences that exist in our neighborhoods; to understand we all have THE RIGHT to live in a community in which we feel secure; and to function more as a partnership that we all can have confidence in.
During 2016, our first full year of operation, we held 294 events and speaking engagements, had 41,421 people attend our programs, and dedicated over 973 hours to engagement throughout Greensboro neighborhoods. We look forward to making even more connections in 2017!
