While there are many perceived and non-perceived benefits of having a program like the CPA, we have established several defined goals to justify our time and involvement in this program, as well as the time and involvement of the program participants.
These goals are:
Establishing a community support group for the Columbus Police Department
Creating better police-community relations
Showcasing the Columbus Police Department and its employees
Creating citizen awareness of the Columbus Police Department
Creating police awareness of citizen concerns and perceptions
Generating positive and proactive contact with community members
