Community Policing and Crime Prevention
Berks County > Municipalities > Wyomissing Borough

Community Policing

Community policing emphasizes the establishment of a working partnership between the police and the community to reduce crime and enhance security. The police department continues to work towards that goal by offering numerous and varied community programs and presentation. These programs are presented by crime prevention officers Daren A. Anders, and Criminal Investigators Courtney C. Garipoli. This year Officer Barry Moyer completed 40 hours of training to become a certified Crime Prevention officer.

Community Policing

The Reading Royals Mascot prepares for a ride on the department's motorcycle during a recent countywide community policing event.

During 2007, 40 programs were presented reaching over 2,000 persons. The programs were directed to a variety of audiences such as nursing students, high school students interested in forensic sciences, local employees on credit card fraud prevention, employees regarding the bank alarm response, issuing Kid Card identifications, business, personal and home safety evaluations, registering bicycles, and many more.

The three largest events that the police department participated in were the Junior League of Reading’s annual Touch- A- Truck, Spring Township’s annual National Night Out, and Vanity Fair’s Safety Day.

Please contact Sergeant Tom Endy at 610-375-6102 or email tendy@wyopd.org to schedule a presentation or tour for your community group today.
