The PNRC program provides uniformed officers to each of the five major public housing communities in Greensboro. Claremont Courts, Ray Warren Homes, Hampton Homes, Smith Homes, and Hickory Trails each have two officers assigned to provide services and assistance to the residents. A significant amount of the officers' daily activities consists of high-visibility foot patrol throughout the housing communities. This time is spent getting to know the residents and identifying problems that affect the quality of life of those residing in public housing communities. This unit consists of 10 officers and is supervised by Sgt. Ryan Todd.
