Through its many programs and events, the City strives to inform, educate, and engage the community. Dublin Police Services invites you to become part of important programs like Neighborhood Watch, learn about City functions by participating in Inside Dublin, and engage in public safety classes.
Community Engagement Programs
- Inside Dublin informs those who work or live in Dublin about the issues facing the community and encourages community involvement at all levels. Classes begin in October and last seven weeks.
- "Coffee with the Chief" gives residents an opportunity to meet and converse with the Chief of Police and other officers in a casual, relaxed setting. Coffee with the Chief is also often held at the Dublin Farmers' Market during the season (April through September).
- Neighborhood Watch is a program that teaches neighborhoods how to unite and build a safer community and to improve their quality of life by identifying and reporting suspicious activity. Meetings and events are conducted throughout the year.
- The Police Chief's Advisory Panel (CAP) serves the Chief of Police as an advisory resource that provides feedback to the Chief on ways to enhance police-community relations.
