And for good reason: Rapid growth has meant a rapid expansion of services. In the past year we have added an additional officer to the force. The services provided have gone well beyond traffic control and crime investigation. The department has progressed from a traditional, re-active, police force, to a pro-active force (community policing) with the institution of several enhanced programs.
The Department features motorcycle officers, bicycle patrols, a school resource officer, and a narcotics task force officer. In efforts to prevent crime officers can ride department bikes after their shift is over. Officers take to the streets in the evenings and during the night, patrolling our subdivisions and shopping centers. Bike Officers tour the major Allen and West retail corridor, checking parking lots for everything from car theft to handicapped parking violations.
The department’s summer “Safety Town” program has become one of the most successful events in the community. As part of the two-week program, young children are taught various safety lessons, including those about bike riding, using electricity, fire and personal protection.
The Woodhaven Police Department shall establish and maintain a safe, friendly environment conducive to business and family life, through the delivery of superior police service and community involvement.
