Community & Transparency
The CommUNITY Initiative is a strategic framework for the Georgetown Police Department’s community engagement plan. The concept is a creative play on the word “community.” The police department has identified seven major stakeholder groups in which the department works with in order to forge stronger relationships, create opportunities to listen and learn community concerns, teach and communicate when and where appropriate, as well as to collaboratively identify and solve public safety related problems within our community.
The seven CommUNITY stakeholder groups the police department will be focused on include:
- Neighborhoods (micro-communities)
- Business Community
- Faith Based Organizations
- Non-Governmental Organizations (Social Services)
The initiative will further position the police department to take a leadership role in bringing the community together through collaboration on various programs and partnerships, even across stakeholder groups when and where appropriate.
Welcome to the Georgetown Police Department’s CommUNITY & Transparency Page. Over the years, the Georgetown Police Department has worked diligently and intentionally to build and maintain community trust and legitimacy.
