Community Relations Team
The Green Township Police Community Relations Team (CRT) is tasked with promoting positive relationships between the police department and the community. The CRT is comprised of 1 sergeant and 6 officers. The entire department, along with the CRT team, is involved in various outreach and educational programs throughout the year.
As in any community, crime is one of our primary concerns in Green Township. Neighborhood Watch is one of the most effective tools that we have at our disposal to insure that our crime rate remains low, and that our community is as safe as possible.
Neighborhood Watch involves citizens working with their local police department, by assisting in the prevention and detection of crime. Residents are trained to recognize suspicious activities and are encouraged to contact the police when something out of the ordinary is observed. Police officers will then promptly respond and determine if criminal activity is occurring.
Birthday with the Badge aims to improve community relations between our police department & our school families by pampering deserving children on their birthdays. Visit Birthday with the Badge’s Facebook page for up to date information and photographs from past events.
