Community Resource Officer (CRO) Program

Solving Problems Through Community Partnerships

file

History and Purpose

In 2006, the Boston College Police Department in partnership with The Office of Residential Life recognized the need and importance of building and fostering a positive relationship amongst BC Police Officers and the student population residing on campus. From that, the “Adopt-a-Cop” program was created, and has been very instrumental since its creation in building and strengthening relationships within our community.

In the fall of 2013 the Adopt-a-Cop Program reached another milestone and was renamed the Community Resource Officer (CRO) Program, which brings more focus on the concept of community, and resource our officers serve to each member of the BC Community.

The purpose of the Community Resource Officer (CRO) Program is to ensure that members of the Boston College Police Department have an opportunity to reach out to and work with staff and residents of this community. The emphasis of the program shall be to enhance the knowledge, communication and overall safety of all within the community.

In turn, this should influence the professionalism, effectiveness, and efficiency of the Boston College Police Department, thereby fostering a positive image of the department and creating a more safe and secure working and living environment, by solving problems through community partnerships.

BC Police recognizes the importance of not limiting its parternship with residential students only, but also overlapping those partnerships into other aspects of student life, and faculty and staff. Therefore CRO's assigned to specific Residence Halls, Academic and Office Buildings, and to Community Groups and Organziations.

Beyond the relationships our CRO's are forming, they also can provide a range of Crime Prevention Education programs to their assigned area(s) based upon set "Monthly Themes".
