Community Relations Unit

The Augusta Department of Public Safety (ADPS) Community Relations Unit (CRU) is host to the departments School Resource Officers, the D.A.R.E. instructors, and other community involvement functions. CRU falls under the command of the Special Services Division.

This unit also coordinates and assists with community involvement projects, such as "National Night Out", the "Bugs Bunny Club", and "Gobblin' Good Time" events. These events are designed to bring the community and the Department of Public Safety together. The "Bugs Bunny Club" and "Gobblin' Good Time" are events that were designed by members of the Augusta Department of Public Safety to allow school aged children to bond with officers in a fun and educational environment. These programs help to show the children that officers are available to help them and to ensure that the only time children see officers are not during enforcement activities.

In addition, the unit coordinates officers and equipment for attendance at various block parties throughout the City, as requested. To invite officers to your block party, or for information on special events, call the ADPS at (316) 775-4500.
