The Public Housing Specialist provides Community Policing for public housing areas. Some ways to accomplish this is to:
- Become familiar with the residents of assigned public housing neighborhoods and assist the residents in identifying problems and concerns.
- Respond to calls for service within the assigned housing community.
- Work with the residents and youth of the neighborhood to provide education and information in an effort to prevent crime, community decay, and to enhance the quality of life.
The Public Housing Specialist is a direct connection between the residents and many government, recreational, law enforcement, and other community programs.
