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. We moved from a specialized programmatic approach to an operational philosophy. As our internal crime information systems change, the availability of data for decision-making allows us to hold ourselves more accountable. We wish to reduce crime and calls for service, while increasing our overall citizen satisfaction levels.

As community policing shapes every aspect of our internal decision making process the level of satisfaction within the community also improves. We are committed to providing the best services possible to the residents of Lansing. We continue to look for new and innovative ways to deliver police services and increase our accessibility.
