Community Policing Program

The Naranja Lakes CRA provides funding and support for innovative community policing and code enforcement in the Area’s residential neighborhoods.

Over the past 14 years, the Agency has partnered with the Miami-Dade Police Department’s (MDPD) South District to implement community policing strategies that address the complexities of criminal activities which are prevalent in areas in need of redevelopment.

The Community Policing Program includes daily roving patrols, weekly proactive enforcement sweeps and operations, Residential Empowerment Neighborhood Enforcement Walks (RENEW), community projects, and community-police interactions. The goal of the Program is to reduce crime through proactive police enforcement, as well as foster community-police relations, community education, and overall citizen integration. As of the end of 2020, the area experienced an overall reduction of 29% in violent and property crimes.
