Police & Community Together (PACT)
A new approach in crime-fighting is making North Miami Beach safer. PACT is an initiative that allows the police, and the citizens they serve, to come together in a cooperative spirit of helping each other to achieve a crime free community. After crime information has been gathered and analyzed by the police, the police will deploy the PACT Team into specific neighborhoods, to help reduce specific crime problems and at a later time, see how their efforts are working.
The PACT Team utilizes the police departments Mobile Resource Center, which will be deployed into specific neighborhoods and business areas of the city. These areas are chosen based on recent crime trends identified in the area.
What Will Be Discussed at Pact Meetings
- Any new initiatives the police are developing or implementing.
- The benefits of and how start and maintain a Neighborhood Crime Watch.
- A question and answer period between the police and participants on police related topics.
- Recent crime trends in the specific area of the meeting.
- A review of sexual predators in the neighborhood.
- Various resources that the police offer to help you better protect yourself and keep you aware of on-going crime trends, etc.
