Police and Citizens Together Against Crime Program (PAC-TAC)



About the Program pactacVolunteers

Our citizens have had enough when it comes to crime. Our police officers are on the front lines doing an outstanding job. Citizens and police together can make an even greater impact. Police and Citizens Together Against Crime (PAC-TAC), needs your help to make the difference.

Mayor Warren has put a high priority on crime prevention to improve the safety of our neighborhoods and to move toward her goal of creating more jobs, safer neighborhoods and better schools.

Increasing safety in neighborhoods is not just a law enforcement role, but also involves concerned citizens who feel empowered to work effectively with the police in crime prevention. That's where you come in.

How You Can Help

As a PAC-TAC Volunteer, you will work with an on-duty patrol officer or crime prevention officer as you walk with a PAC-TAC partner in your neighborhood and interact with other citizens and local merchants to help prevent crime.

All volunteer citizens receive extensive training and are issued distinctive clothing, a flashlight and a portable digital radio which has all of the frequencies that patrol officers use. If you spot criminal activity, or are in need of other assistance, you will summon an officer via radio.
