Crime Prevention Unit

The Florence Township Police Department Crime Prevention Unit provides service to all Florence Township residents and businesses.

Crime prevention is the anticipation, recognition and appraisal of a crime risk and the initiation of some action to remove it. It involves a trained police officer that contacts the citizen in an interpersonal relationship with information regarding crime prevention making the citizen more cognizant of ways to reduce the opportunity for crime.

Some of the services that the Crime Prevention Unit provides include educational programs, security surveys, follow-up contacts with victims and organizing the community into neighborhood watch groups as needed. In addition to education, crime prevention also includes physical and electronic countermeasures.

Operation Reassurance

Operation Reassurance is a program designed to make sure that senior citizens and disabled persons who live alone are OK. Between the hours of 8:00 AM and 9:00 AM, every day, the senior citizen or disabled person, calls the police department to check in. If the police department does not get a phone call, a department members will follow-up until we can make sure that everything is OK with the participant. Applications may be obtained at the Florence Township Police Department, or you can call 609-499-3131 to have one brought to you.
