Community Policing

The Lansing police Department has been a long time leader in Community Policing. Our efforts Community Policing have reduced crime and spurred neighborhood and business cooperation.

Community Services

The Community Services provides support and resources to residents of Lansing. This includes organizing Neighborhood Watch groups, providing senior citizens with safety tips, running the Citizen Police Academy, offering crime prevention seminars to businesses and residents, monitoring false alarms, conducting home security surveys, and using McGruff the Crime Dog to spread the crime prevention message.

Neighborhood Watch

A Neighborhood Watch is an organized effort by concerned citizens to improve the quality of life in their neighborhood. In cooperation with the police department, neighbors work to safeguard each other's homes and reduce the risk of crime in their community.

Crime Scene Investigation

Crime Scene Investigation requires the application of diligent and careful methods by which investigators recognize, identify, preserve and collect evidence. This helps determine what actually occurred during the commission of a crime.
