Temporary Police Alarms
The police department has several portable alarms that can be used at
businesses or residences that allow immediate notification of the police
department should a crime occur at that location. The alarms are
installed in response to a perceived need by the owner of the location,
by a perceived need by officers on the department or in response to
known targets of criminal behavior.

on foot in order to present a police presence in the parks to help
prevent crimes and to look for potential problems.
