Safety and Prevention
The Chandler Police Department has 3 crime prevention officers (CPO’s) one assigned to each our our three stations. The officers have received certification for Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED). They are also highly trained in all areas of crime prevention, including personal safety, senior safety, workplace violence prevention, robbery prevention, drugs, home security, and identity theft, to name a few.
The CPO’s are here to help communities establish active Neighborhood Watch programs, assist businesses and homeowners with preventing crime, and work with the street officers to address neighborhood issues and facilitate problem-solving methods.
