The Community Outreach Office is located at 515 54th St., the Sunshine Gardens Apartments, and will be opening on February 8th and will be headed by Capt. Erwin Moreno.

“Our new community outreach office is an amazing addition to our police force. We are extremely proud of bringing our community closer together through the addition of this new office,” Mayor Gabriel Rodriguez said in a statement.

The extra presence of police officers and patrol vehicles in the area aims to heighten vigilance and deter various nuisances, while improving the quality of life for residents in the downtown area.

“Our police department is constantly working on finding innovative ways to protect and serve the residents of our town. I would like to especially thank Captain Moreno and our community outreach officers for going above and beyond the call of duty and further uniting our town,” Rodriguez added.
