RED LAKE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY
Community Patrol Positions for: Red Lake, Little Rock, Redby & Ponemah
The Red Lake Police Department is now accepting applications from members of the community to be involved in the Community Patrol Program. Participants will receive training in radio and law enforcement operations, community patrol techniques and will be certified as community patrol officers.
This is an exciting opportunity to be actively involved in working with law enforcement and patrolling your own community and creating a safer environment for your loved ones and to engage in successful Crime Prevention!
As a Community Patrol Officer, you will be involved in a wide spectrum of events in addition to patrolling, such as Powwows, providing traffic control when necessary, Community Event participation and will have personal knowledge of high crime areas where you can concentrate your patrol efforts.
Community Patrol Officers are an integral part of Crime Prevention. Communities that have Community Patrol see a reduction in the crime rate by as much as 20 percent! Our Community Patrol Officers enable the Red Lake Tribal Law Enforcement Officers to spend more time on patrol and focus on their primary mission. Another benefit to the communities we live in is the cost savings. Properly implemented, Community Patrol groups are an excellent compliment to Law Enforcement agencies whom are short staffed.
Are you interested in being a Community Patrol Member? Do you want to be part of creating a safer community and work with Law Enforcement to protect and serve and help reduce crime, then we need you! Community Patrol is a cornerstone of “Community Policing”.
If you would like to be a part of our team and take part in this exciting opportunity, please contact: Officer Kimberly Wood – Law Enforcement Liaison & Patrol at (218) 679-1917. Please leave your name and a number that is best to reach you at. The Red Lake Police Department hopes to hear from citizens interested in making a difference in our communities
