The Cherry Hills Village Police Department recognizes that effective policing can only be achieved with community involvement. Our community is most safe when citizens are involved in the detection and prevention of crime. Therefore, the purpose of our Community Programs is to train citizens regarding crime and safety, provide ways for citizens to easily communicate with the department, and build relationships with individuals and groups in the community. We encourage you to use these programs to become involved in preventing crime and increasing safety in your neighborhood.
