Community Action Team
Thursday, June 2, 2022
The Warrenton Police Department has long benefited from its relationship with the community it serves, and that synergy can only continue with transparency and community involvement. The CAT team was formed in June 2020 to align the Warrenton Police Departments Policies with 21st Century best policing practices.
The ultimate objective of the Community Action Team is to help enhance the level of trust and understanding between the community and the Warrenton Police Department.
The partnerships formed within the Community Action Team (CAT) will foster trust between the community and local law enforcement. Our mission is to bring the local police department into the 21st century through adopting best policing practices, addressing neighborhood concerns, recognizing issues to protect citizens and community members in a non-biased way, reviewing incidents with sensitivity, respect, and objectivity, applying logic and truth to all commentary regarding incidents, and building community trust through transparency and accountability.
We envision a safe community environment made possible by a strong, positive and trusting relationship between the community-at-large and the Warrenton Police Department. We recognize the effective delivery of public safety services requires the police partnering together with its citizens to ensure the safety of all its residents and those visiting our community.
