Florence Police Department

Working to Keep Our Communities Safe

Effective law enforcement in today’s society not only requires innovative police practices but also the combined partnerships between area law enforcement entities, residents, and businesses, as well as elected officials and government agencies. The primary organizational goal of this concept is working cooperatively with individual citizens, groups of citizens, and both public and private organizations to identify and resolve issues which potentially affect the livability of specific neighborhoods, business areas, or the city as a whole. Under the concept of Community-based policing, the Florence Police Department recognizes the fact that police officers cannot effectively deal with such issues alone and must partner with others who share a mutual responsibility for resolving problems.
