Community Policing

The Pleasant Ridge police engage in community policing and are proud to be part of what makes our community safe, welcoming, and neighborly. Our officers wear body cameras and all interactions with the public are required to be recorded. Our officers are required to take de-escalation, cultural diversity and cultural competency, and communication training to ensure that our police conduct themselves in the most professional manner.

Our police are aware of implicit bias and systemic racism and condemn their disparate impact on communities of color. We are committed to making sure that these issues are not present in Pleasant Ridge.
