Philosophy of Community Policing
The concept that police officers and private citizens working together in creative ways can help solve contemporary community problems related to crime, fear of crime, social and physical disorder, and neighborhood decay.
Community Policing Neighborhoods
The City of Albert Lea is divided into three community policing districts. Each district is then further divided into individual neighborhoods, or subdistricts, with each subdistrict assigned to an individual officer. Districts are designated on the map by Roman numerals while the subdistricts are designated by numbers.
