Community Outreach

Sector Policing

The Big Rapids Department of Public Safety Police Division is currently engaged in a Sector Policing Initiative. The initiative is a city-wide initiative to get to know our citizens better. We will be coming to your door and speaking with you concerning your neighborhood. We believe that these contacts are important to develop our relationship with our community.

We will be inquiring about current events in your neighborhood and how we can make your neighborhood safer and better for you. Some of the most common things we have already come across are traffic complaints, I.e. speeding, noise complaints, and suspicious activity. Even though you may not report it when it is happening, feel free to report it to the officer that comes to your door to speak with you. We want to know what is going on, good and bad.

If we are unable to reach you, we will be leaving a Sector Policing flier at your door to explain what the program is about. The program flier is also able to download here.

We look forward to speaking with you and hearing how we can improve our service to our community.
