Police Assistance Program 

The Mesa Police Central Business Outreach Program is designed to be a more direct bridge to business in the central district and the police to address concerns. The program allows contact to specific individuals with more time and resources to rectify chronic or persistent issues that regular calls for service have difficulty addressing. The direct link will provide an opportunity to voice non-emergency concerns, report problems, share ideas and foster relationships. There are 4 police contacts that include the Central Community Action Officer, the Central Crime Prevention Specialist, the Central Bike Business Liaison Officer and Community Engagement Officer.
