Currently, the Police Department divides the city into 12-geographically based zones, each regularly patrolled on average by a Police Officer. Neighborhood Team Policing (NTP) is assembling highly trained and motivated members of the Police Department and assigning them full-time to a specific area of the city comprised of neighborhoods sharing similar concerns and challenges unique to their common environment. Neighborhood Team Policing is fully supported and empowered by Police Command Staff to address and engage all matters concerning traffic, crime, and quality of life, while building collaborative and interactive relationships with the residents. Neighborhood Team Policing provides customized services and protection that is both responsive and intuitive, in partnership with the people living in the community. A goal of Neighborhood Team Policing is to have criminals, motorists and residents alike feel as if Coral Gables Police are always there. Officers in the Unit can be reached at 305-460-5430.
