GPD employees enjoy being a part of this great community and hope you are proud of your
police department.

We believe that interacting with each other and getting to understand multiple points of view helps build mutual respect and trust. These qualities also help make our city safer. Here are some opportunities for us to learn about each other and work together to make our city safer:

  • Neighborhood Oriented Policing is about getting to know each other so we can work together to solve problems. We all play a role in identifying, reporting, and finding solutions for troublesome issues.
  • Police have long known that we cannot prevent or fight crime without your help. For this partnership to work, we must share information about criminal activity. We offer several ways you can find out about crime in your neighborhood. If you know what crime trends are occurring around you, you can be more vigilant. Each week, we publish an updated crime report. We also subscribe to Crimemapping, an interactive site that allows you to query for data and sign up for crime alerts.
  • Community Watch is a crime prevention program that enlists the active participation of residents, in cooperation with law enforcement, to reduce crime and victimization in communities. If your neighborhood has one, join it! To start one, contact your Community Resource Officer.  
  • Participate in National Night Out. It is a fun way for neighbors to get to know each other and officers getting to know you.
  • If you want to experience what an officer does on shift, sign up for a ride-along. Want to learn more about GPD? Participate in the Greensboro Police Citizens’ Academy.
  • Working alongside each other is a great way to meet in the middle. Internships and volunteer opportunities have created some strong, lasting bonds between GPD employees and residents.
  • Let’s communicate with each other! GPD has a Facebook page, Twitter account, and YouTube channel. You can also sign up for Nextdoor, a free secure social network for your neighborhood. If you want to connect with us on your mobile device, download the MyPD app. Here are all the ways we can stay in contact with each other.
