As a law enforcement agency we continue to face challenges brought about by the current economic changes, it is increasingly important that this agency and our community work together to ensure the safety of the public. The core mission of the San Juan Police Department is the protection of our citizens. The law enforcement community plays an integral role in the advancement of this mission.  As our police department faces budget constraints, therefore limiting our resources and staffing levels, community policing strategies are essential to maintain effective public safety services within this changing economy.

 

These grant funding opportunities help support the San Juan Police Department to increase the total number of our staff; enhance our relationship with our community; and directly address the public safety concerns facing our community. It is our goal to continue to examine these issues so that we may provide the best available resources, information, and guidance to the field to assist our police officers in the development of sustainable policies and procedures that will help shape the new reality in policing. We have attached a list of all the grant awards the San Juan Police Department has received since 2009. This reflects a five year period in which our police department has been very effective and successful in receiving these awards and the purpose/functions they serve and continue to serve.
