Community policing is a strategy that emphasizes building ties with the communities that police officers serve. Enhancing the city’s existing programs, like the Asbury Park Police Department Community Relations Unit, will help improve relationships between officers and West Side residents.

Officers participate in a unity event organized by CAN (Community Action Network)
