The Drug Resistance Education and Mentoring Program was developed by the San Angelo Police Department in 2008 to address local needs and concerns affecting the youth in our community. Topics such as drug abuse and resistance, bullying, internet safety, and peer pressure are just some of the subjects presented by uniformed officers. Currently two officers teach approximately 1,000 5th grade students each year in public and private schools throughout San Angelo.
A volunteer group of twenty one active and retired officers whose purpose is to render final honors to law enforcement personnel. Other duties include representing the Department at special police and local functions as deemed appropriate by the Chief of Police.
The goal of the IT section is to oversee and maintain the technological infrastructure to better serve the officers of the department and citizens of San Angelo. All computer maintenance, software implementation and web development is handled within the departments' IT section. The IT section is also involved in the research, procurement and implementation of new technologies as it applies to law enforcement.
The Crime Prevention section is part of the Community Services program of the Police Department and is dedicated to providing information and tips to better protect the citizens of San Angelo against burglaries, theft, assault, fraud and other crimes. Crime prevention officers research and present programs to individuals and groups to raise awareness about home, vehicle and personal safety and to businesses to raise awareness about shoplifting & fraud, workplace violence, robbery and burglaries. Citizens can contact the crime prevention section to have security surveys performed at their home or business at no charge. The officer will make recommendations on landscaping, lighting, locks, doors, windows, etc to improve the overall security. In addition, home owners can request a Home Insurance Inspection which could result in a 5 to 20% reduction in home owners insurance premiums. Crime prevention officers can also assist in creating neighborhood watch programs in your neighborhood.
