The Public Safety department seeks to prevent crime, violence, and fires by educating and building relationships with our community.
Benton Harbor police officers bring these programs to our community:
- K-5 Programs include “Officer Friendly,” an opportunity for our officers to visit classrooms, using videos, coloring books and other teaching tools to help acquaint young people with law enforcement officials.
- Middle School through High School. As members of the Police Athletic League (PAL) (http://www.nationalpal.org ) we use their resources to connect youth to mentoring and youth leadership programs.
- Senior Neighbor includes programs to address the unique needs of our senior citizens and to ensure that they are not alone as they face the challenges of advanced age.
- National Night Out (https://natw.org/about). Held annually on the first Tuesday in August, National Night Out is a time when our police officers help build a sense of community and camaraderie on a local level. We join thousands of communities across the nation in hosting special events designed to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places for everyone.
