Crime Prevention Unit

The goal of the Crime Prevention Unit, led by our Crime Prevention Specialist, is to reduce crime in Tracy through public awareness and preventative measures. This unit serves as a community liaison by providing services to the Tracy community that reduce crime and improve the quality of life. Our Crime Prevention Specialist is dedicated to educating the public on how to safely take steps that improve the security of neighborhoods and businesses by appearing less desirable to criminals making them more resistant to crime through offering Neighborhood Watch, Business Watch, and Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design assessments.

Our Crime Prevention Specialist aims to enhance the safety, security, and quality of life for the residents and visitors of the City of Tracy through various programs, which include communication via social media, community relations, the Community Police Academy, the Prescription Drug Take Back Program, Identity Theft Prevention Document Shredding events, police department tours, safety fairs, Etch & Catch Catalytic Converter Theft Deterrant Program, and neighborhood outreach initiatives, such as National Night Out. Additionally, our Crime Prevention Specialist acts as a direct link to the Tracy Crime Stoppers, who allow citizens to submit crime-related tips anonymously via phone by calling (209) 831-4857, by texting “TIPTPD” and your message to CRIMES (274637), or via TracyCrimeStoppers.com.

Our Volunteers In Police Service (VIPS) Program operates within the Crime Prevention Unit.
