Neighborhood Officer Program

The Cottonwood Police Department has created a Neighborhood Officer Program that divides the city into 9 distinct "neighborhoods". The objective of the Neighborhood Officer Program is to identify community issues, concerns, problems and crime trends which have long term quality of life issues.

The Neighborhood Officer will act as a liaison between the Police Department, the community, and a variety of city agencies as necessary to address problems and reduce criminal activity.

The Neighborhood Officer responsibilities:

  • Take primary "ownership" and identify and address crime issues within their assigned neighborhood.
  • Assist with public education, crime prevention, and neighborhood specific problems and help with coordination of other city services.
  • Track neighborhood problems and crimes that affect the overall quality of life in a neighborhood and require repeated police response.

How do you contact your Neighborhood Officer?

  • Use the interactive map to locate the neighborhood where you live or work and identify the officer(s) assigned to you.
  • Click on the email link of the assigned officer and address your concerns.
  • "Neighborhood Issues" that effect your quality of life should be relayed to your Neighborhood Officer whereas "Criminal Activity" requiring immediate intervention should be reported immediately to the Cottonwood Police Department through our Public Safety Communication Center at (928) 649-1397.

If you have a crime to report call the Police Department's Communication Center at (928) 649-1397 or in the event of an emergency dial 9-1-1.
