Additional Crime Prevention Programs
In addition to the major program facilitated by Police Community Relations/Crime Prevention Unit (PCR), they also contributed to:
Career Day Programs – PCR personnel instruct students at several public and private schools in the Santa Fe School District about career opportunities in law enforcement.
Hispanic Chamber of Commerce – Officer Chavarria is the liaison to the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. With the help of the Hispanic Chamber the Immigrant Outreach program was active.
Home Security Surveys – Documented home security surveys were conducted to evaluate the safety and security of citizen residences upon request.
National Medicine Take Back – PCR conducted two take-back events in 2012 along with the Drug Enforcement Administration. Over 140 lbs. total in expired and unwanted drugs were collected for both events.
The PCR unit has two promotional cars: a 1986 Chevrolet Camero and a 1982 Chevrolet Corvette. The Corvette and Officer Montoya were featured in Corvette Magazine this year.
