The Greenville Police Department seeks to build strong relationships and mutual trust with the community it serves through various community service and crime prevention initiatives. Interacting with community members in a non-enforcement context helps to break down barriers and overcome stereotypes, while also building the necessary trust that is essential to addressing neighborhood problems and reducing crime.
The department participates in a variety of community outreach programs and initiatives such as:
- Adult and youth police academies
- Community events such as National Night Out
- Police Athletic League (PAL) sports programs
- Local school outreach
- Charity food drives
