Partners and Policing

Post Date:08/03/2017 3:28 PM

The next Partners in Policing (PIP) class will be in the Fall of 2017.  This program is open to all Torrance residents, people that work in Torrance and anyone else that has affiliations with the City (i.e. people that attend school in Torrance, are members of a church in Torrance, members of civic organizations based in Torrance such as Kiwanis, Rotary, Chamber of Commerce, etc).  Must be 18 or older.  Registration for this class fills up quickly.  

"Partners In Policing" is a Community Awareness Program that educates the community through those who are currently the closest to us, our Neighborhood Watch Members along with community members and business organizations.

The Program allows for the community to "walk in the shoes of an officer," and experience hands-on exercises relating to the duties, services and responsibilities of policing.  Participants will meet officers from the Gang Detail, SWAT, K9 Detail, and interact with a variety of officers from the details within the department.

Through the Partners In Policing Program the community gains a better understanding of the policing function and The Police Department in turn receives valuable input regarding the community policing needs.

Classes will be held every Thursday for 12 weeks from 6:00p.m. to 8:30p.m.

To register, fill out the Partners in Policing Form or contact Officer Steve Fletcher at (310) 618-6391.
