The City Center Unit consists of one sergeant and four officers who are assigned to the downtown area and Union Station. Members of the unit focus on providing a safe environment for citizens and visitors to the downtown area.
These officers meet with businesses on a daily basis and assist with any concerns they may have. The officers tailor their response to any problems to include both traditional and more non-traditional methods. These problem-solving activities include input and involvement from the business owners and employees who are affected by the problems.
During special events such as Slammer baseball games, parades and farmers markets, these officers conduct foot patrol, bike patrol, and general traffic control to ensure the safety of all visitors to downtown.
