Community Policing

The Folsom Police Department commitment to the philosophy of Community Policing is evident by the collaborative community partnerships that have been developed and using problem solving strategies as follows:   

  • Identification of residential and commercial areas that have a high level of reported individuals responsible for criminal activity. Identify peak hours in which crimes are occurring and individuals who are repeat offenders;

  • Assist neighborhood organizations in graffiti and refuse eradication;

  • Work with school officials by providing counseling, education and training of children in discouraging drug and alcohol use;

  • Provide liaison with other public organizations: Fire, Street, Garbage, Building Inspection Departments, Code Enforcement, and County Health. Identify hazards that exist in targeted locations and utilize these public resources to correct deficiencies;

  • Conduct targeted enforcement of narcotics violations in known high crime areas utilizing undercover and high-visibility tactics;

  • Identify known gang members and provide counseling oriented toward redirecting the youth to community activities through the City's Park and Recreation Departments.
