Community Outreach Programs

The concept of community policing is a fundamental part of the Golden Valley Police Department (GVPD). Intervention and prevention are key elements to a safe community. GVPD actively pursues building positive relationships with members of our community through our community outreach programs.

The Golden Valley Police Department (GVPD) has adopted the nationwide 9PM Routine campaign to educate residents about best safety practices like removing valuables from your car, locking your car, turning on outside lights, locking your home, and more.

One focus area of the campaign is preventing vehicle theft. Read the tips below to ensure you're taking necessary steps in keeping yourself and your vehicle safe.

  • Park in well-lit areas.
  • Close and lock all windows and doors.
  • Never leave your vehicle while it's running.
  • Don't leave keys or valuables in your vehicle.

Created by a law enforcement agency in Florida, the 9PM Routine campaign and its hashtag, #9PMRoutine, have been adopted by agencies all over the country and continue to provide value to communities by raising awareness and sharing simple prevention tips.
