AC Police in Your Neighborhood

The Atlantic City Police Department debuted their Neighborhood Coordination Unit today. Two officers were assigned to each of the city’s six wards, and four officers were assigned to the homeless outreach program. During their shifts, the officers will spend time on community engagement, according to a news release from the police department, and will be available by cell phone for non-emergency matters. They will also go to neighborhood and business association meetings within their assigned ward, and focus on quality of life and crime trends.
