COMMUNITY ORIENTED POLICING

Community Safety Website

Community Safety Website

The Community Safety Website is a tool to improve the Police Bureau's community-oriented policing approach. The website provides an easy way for citizens to take an active role in their neighborhoods' public safety. Through this website, you can report anonymous tips, receive real-time crime alerts, view crime statistics and join or start a block watch.

Citizen's Police Academy

Twice a year, the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police sponsors an opportunity for High School students in the Pittsburgh community to become closely acquainted with the roles and responsibilities of the Police Bureau. All interested persons must complete an application and give permission for the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police to conduct a background check to determine if they have a criminal record. 

Student Police Academy

Likewise twice a year, the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police sponsors an opportunity for High School students in the Pittsburgh community to also become closely acquainted with the roles and responsibilities of the Police Bureau. The Pittsburgh Student’s Police Academy (SPA) brings the police and Pittsburgh’s high school community closer together in a setting that offers a sample of police training to each participant.
