[ARCHIVED] Neighborhood Services Moves to Police Department

Neighborhood Services transitioned from the Town of Parker Community Development Department to the Parker Police Department as of Jan. 9.


This reorganization has allowed for a more effective pairing between Neighborhood Services and the Police Department and allows our organization to get to the core of community policing and the “broken windows theory.”


The term “broken windows” comes from the metaphor used to describe this concept: “If a window is broken and left unrepaired, people walking by will conclude that no one cares and no one is in charge.” This philosophy says that the little things do matter. This theory will be combined with other community-policing strategies focused on graffiti, blight, trash, disabled/abandoned vehicles and other neighborhood concerns.


Although minor and on the surface seemingly insignificant, quality-of-life crimes were found to be the tipping point for other more serious crimes. With the increase in Parker residents and building infrastructure, this merger was needed to assist with the overall quality of life for those who live, work and visit our Town.


Information about Neighborhood Services can now be found on the Parker Police Department’s website, www.ParkerPolice.org/NeighborhoodServices. If you need to report an issue to Neighborhood Services, please call 303.841.9800.
