Street crime is generally considered a crime that takes place in a public place (like the street). It can include anything from robbery to drug dealing.
The officers of the Street Crimes Division focus their efforts on criminal apprehension, as well as concentrating on specific crime trends in Roswell. At times, the division works with other local, state and federal law enforcement agencies in combating crime.
Crime affects the entire community. Officers in the Street Crimes Division, and all RPD officers, are dedicated to taking criminals off the streets and reducing crime in neighborhoods, but it takes all citizens to share in the responsibility to take a stand. One way to do this is to report suspicious activity. You may help prevent a crime. The Street Crimes Division looks forward to building positive relationships within the community.
If you have a tip which could help solve a crime, contact the Roswell Police Department (575-624-6770) or Chaves County Crime Stoppers 888-594-8477.
