Community Service Officers

A Community Service Officer (CSO) is a non-sworn uniformed police technician who is responsible for basic criminal and traffic collision investigations, issuing parking citations and warnings, towing abandoned vehicles, and basic collection of investigative information and evidence. 

The duties of Community Service Officers are instrumental in ensuring the availability of sworn police officers to conduct more critical patrol activities. Under the budget the Department was approved for three positions, which have been filled and these new CSOs are already getting out into the community, taking reports and assisting patrol officers with investigations.
