Community Oriented Policing

The City of Ontario Police Department uses CDBG funds to implement a community oriented policing program in designated low and moderate income neighborhoods. This partnership involves working with community leaders, businesses, and property owners to address neighborhood issues including code enforcement, crime free multi-family housing, safe and clean streets, and school interventions. With respect to housing, the Police Department implements the Crime Free Multifamily Housing Program to control and eliminate crime in apartment buildings. Under this program, the Police Department will provide training to apartment owners, conduct a property inspection to identify and eliminate potential crime hazards, and certify properties where the owner signs a written agreement and commitment to maintain the program.
