Police And Citizens Together
P.A.C.T. is a community based program endorsed by the Garden City Police Department that helps members of the community become more actively involved in the policing activities that go on in and around where they live. P.A.C.T. helps neighbors become more proactive in preventing crime around their homes. P.A.C.T. lets neighbors actively participate in improving their own quality of life in Garden City. P.A.C.T. enables communities to be proactive rather than reactive against crime and quality of life issues.
P.A.C.T. is similar to Neighborhood Watch in the fact that citizens take an active role in protecting their neighborhoods and community. P.A.C.T. takes this a step further by assigning an officer with the Garden City Police Department to coordinate efforts within each neighborhood. The officer will host and facilitate meetings in their assigned neighborhood where people can freely share information about issues that concern them. In addition, the assigned officer will be the primary non-emergency contact for the neighborhoods when residents have concerns. P.A.C.T. makes sure representatives from your neighborhood will always have someone to contact at the Garden City Police Department.
The Police Department’s effectiveness is greatly enhanced with active participation by the citizens we serve. If you would like to learn more about P.A.C.T. or how to start the program in your neighborhood, please contact the Garden City Police Department at (620) 276-1300.
