In addition to the daily contact our officers have with residents as they patrol our community, the department hosts and participates in numerous types of outreach.
Crime Prevention Training
The Department provides free crime prevention training to individuals, community groups, and businesses on topics including: neighborhood watch, identity theft, personal safety, workplace safety, senior security, child safety seats, Watch Your Car Program, and other topics by request.
Neighborhood Watch is a program used throughout the nation in which neighbors look out for each other. Neighborhood Watch groups typically plan and host their own initial meeting and invite the Department to send an officer who will provide information on Neighborhood Watch and local safety.
The Hyattsville Police Department is partnering with our faith communities to host of series of community-building conversations with residents. Please join us! Information is included in the attached flyer:
