Welcome to the CSPD Community Relations website.

Since our humble beginnings in the late 1800s, the CSPD has maintained a standard of excellence in the area of community relations. We embrace a Community Oriented Policing philosophy, rather than only crime response.  The CSPD Community Relations Unit, in partnership with all of our sworn and civilian staff, strives to maintain open communication with the community members and build strong relationships with diverse populations to include the LGBTQIA+ community, minority leadership groups, and more.
