City of Pittsburgh Bureau of Police
Community-Oriented Policing

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.

Twice a year, the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police sponsors an opportunity for members of the community to become closely acquainted with the roles and responsibilities of the Police Bureau. The Pittsburgh Citizen’s Police Academy (CPA) brings the police and the community close together in a setting that offers a sample of police training to each participant.

Street Beat Pittsburgh is an interactive talk show designed to inform the citizens of Pittsburgh of the present and proactive initiatives being shared by the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police, citizens, human services groups and the community at large.
