CORE Program

The new program, called CORE (Community Outreach and Engagement), gives each of the six area districts of the City its own officer assigned to serve as a resource to residents of the region. CORE uses the Sterling Heights Police Department existing area district map and divides the City into six boundaries: Adam, Baker, Charlie, David, Edward and Frank. Each area district's officer will be the region’s advocate and neighborhood expert. These six officers will work not only to make meaningful relationships, but to identify and report potential crime trends or neighborhood issues to SHPD leadership.

A Traffic Resource Officer has been added to the CORE team and will be assigned to support all 6 districts in any traffic related matters. 

"The goal of the CORE program is to better humanize our department as well as for us to be more proactive in our community outreach," former Police Chief John Berg said. "We hope the CORE program will not only increase trust of police and allow for greater cooperation from citizens, but also make our officers' jobs safer and easier to do."
