The Community Affairs Section personnel and programs are under the direction of the Office of the Chief of Police. The objectives of the Community Affairs programs and activities are to:
Provide comprehensive crime prevention programs to all segments of the community.
Serve as a well-informed, professional public information office.
Link the organization's mission with community participation through the establishment of Police Community Centers.
Support Department operations through crime analysis.
Under the command of a Police Sergeant, the Community Affairs Section is comprised of police officers, civilian personnel, and volunteers. Currently, the Community Affairs Section maintains four Police Community Centers located within the City. Each of these centers has a Senior Lead Officer assigned to it to facilitate the needs of the community. Each of the Inglewood Police Community Centers is located in one of the four police "beats" of the City.
