Community Policing

The Mt. Juliet Police Department Community Policing unit is charged with the responsibility of establishing positive communication and partnerships between the Mt. Juliet community and the police department. While all police officers are obligated to engage in community policing, the unit must assist and create avenues in which to accomplish this task.

The unit's area of responsibilities include crime prevention, HOA and neighborhood watch groups, citizen's police academies, city special events, home and commercial security surveys, Citizen Police Academy Alumni, and Police Explorers.


The Mt. Juliet Police Department maintains a very active Community Policing unit, responsible for a vast array of community services.
