The Redlands Police Department is committed to protecting and advocating for victims of crime. The RPD has officially embraced Parallel Justice as one of the Department’s five core initiatives and added the language “helping victims rebuild their lives” to the Department’s list of organizational guidelines to send a clear message, both internally and to the public, that this approach comes from the top and should be taken seriously.
The Redlands Police Department’s goal is to reduce crime by the education of the community. The Crime Prevention and Community Education Unit will oversee and coordinate crime prevention activities and make presentations to citizen, community, and school groups regarding crime and safety issues. They will be available for information regarding traffic and parking questions and education including Child Seat inspections.

participate: City residents, young or old, single or married,
