The Patrol Anti-Crime Team (PACT) was established in 2011 in order to address emerging crime trends and prolific offenders. The Team consists of two patrol teams of four officers each, drawn from existing patrol resources. Members of PACT do not generally respond to calls for service, but instead take a proactive approach to stopping crime. Utilizing criminal intelligence developed by the team, other patrol officers and crime analysis, PACT focuses on the most pressing crime trends and those repeat offenders who are frequently responsible for those crimes. PACT is a flexible team, designed to shift resources in response to the changing needs of the community.
Neighborhood Resource Officers (NROs) work with the community to improve the quality of life in in the neighborhoods in which they are assigned. NROs help bring about positive change in neighborhoods by working in collaboration with and utilizing resources from different government agencies, businesses, and community members. NROs are based out of C.O.P.S. Shops (Community Oriented Policing Services) located in neighborhoods through the City of Spokane.
