Crime Prevention (P.A.C.T)

Police And Community Team 

The Police And Community Team (P.A.C.T.) is comprised of one sergeant, one corporal and four officers who engage in crime prevention and problem solving activities with the community.  Each member of the P.A.C.T. unit is assigned to a patrol beat and works as the department liaison within their assigned section. They work closely with other divisions within the police department and other City departments to address crime concerns. Further, these officers work with Crime Watch groups, community groups and citizens to assist in providing information, crime prevention techniques and solutions to resolve community crime concerns. In Cedar Hill, we understand the value of people and relationships which is why we offer a number of programs designed to create opportunities for community engagement to build lasting relationships and help keep our community safe.

Utilize our online Action Request Form to report issues and concerns.
