community relations


The Community relations unit utilizes multiple strategies for a comprehensive community policing approach. The Norristown Police department partners with multiple stakeholders throughout Norristown. These partnerships include the community, non-profit organizations, other public sector agencies and the private sector. 

With initiatives like Eddie Eagle, the Hispanic Outreach Program, Nextdoor, Community Task Force, Security Surveys for homes and businesses, and Child Safety Seat, the Community Relations Unit seeks to increase community participation and engagement, thereby serving the public more effectively.

The Community Relations Unit is staffed by Lt.  Bob Greenaway, Officer Brian Saxon, and Community Affairs Liaison Gina Davies, who are responsible for the coordination of community-based programs.  The Community Relations Unit seeks to accomplish this task with the assistance of the entire police department.

The Community Relations Unit is always interested in receiving new ideas from the public.  Together we can improve existing programs and introduce new ways to benefit our Community.  If you have any suggestions for the Unit, please feel free to contact us.
