Crime Prevention



The mission of the Crime Prevention Officer is to provide crime deterrent services and programs to the citizens and business within the City of La Quinta. Included in this endeavor are programs consisting of informative presentations, crime reduction programs, and outreach initiatives. These complimentary services not only assist in the suppression of crime but also minimize the fear and negative perception associated with crime through a working partnership between the police and the community.
