Police - Community Safety
Community Resource Team (CRT)
The Community Resource Team (CRT) includes a Sergeant and three uniformed officers. The purpose of CRT is to engage the community through efforts such as Community Watch Programs, daily business checks, safety talks, guided Police Department tours for youth, partnering with non-profit entities for charitable and enrichment purposes. The CRT assists with a variety of special events in the community such as parades, festivals, and community 5K runs. The CRT unit also assists uniformed patrol teams, vice/narcotics and criminal investigation teams as needed.
The community watch initiative is designed to establish partnerships between the community and the Police Department. Community watch meetings focus on providing safety information and tips to the public in an effort to help keep citizens safe. These meetings provide an opportunity for the public to address representatives of the Police Department with their concerns and gratitude. It also enables neighbors to get to know each other again as well as the police officers serving their communities. If you live in the City of Asheboro and you are interested in starting a community watch or would like more information regarding community watch, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the Asheboro Police Department at (336) 626-1300 x 303 or (336) 626-2733.
