Trumbull Metropolitan Housing Authority
The Trumbull Metropolitan Housing Authority detail consists of two full time officers and one Sergeant. The unit is responsible for patrolling all Trumbull Metropolitan Housing Authority properties within the City of Warren. The officers enforce the criminal trespass program along with state and local laws. The unit’s primary objective is to combat the drug problem and violence within these areas, making it a safe environment for the residents. The officers use the community policing philosophy when working the assigned area.
Officers go door to door making contact with the citizens, asking them for their needs and concerns in the community. Officers continue to form a partnership with the community and use problem solving skills, thereby forming a better partnership in solving the problems within the community. The department plans to continue and possibly expand the program.
Members of the unit work closely with the Trumbull Metropolitan Housing Authority’s representatives. They attend tenant association meetings and various functions throughout the year. Additionally, the officers worked flexible hours and days throughout the year in an effort to meet the needs of the housing authority.
The officers assigned to the Trumbull Metropolitan Housing Authority Unit work with the United States Marshal’s Task Force focusing their efforts serving Arrest Warrants and Capiases. This activity is done approximately four times per month.
