Auburn Police have adopted the principles of Community Oriented Policing by working with the members of the community to solve crime-related problems. Crime prevention is the anticipation, recognition, and appraisal of a crime risk and the initiation of an action to remove or reduce it. The Auburn Police Department offers several crime prevention services such as house checks, business and residential surveys, neighborhood watch programs, and presentations throughout our community. Contact a crime prevention officer for a presentation, neighborhood watch presentation, or business/home survey by calling Community Services Sergeant Charles Nesmith at (334) 501-3124. To request a house check, contact the Patrol Secretary at (334) 501-3150. After hours you may make or cancel a house check request by contacting the Auburn Police Department's Communications Section at (334) 501-3100.
Auburn Public Safety Services hosts the Auburn Public Safety Citizens' Academy. This program allows citizens to come into the department and learn the details of providing services to our community. For more information about this program, please call Public Safety Administration personnel at (334) 501-3110.
