One common duty of a community liaison officer is to give safety presentations to community organizations and schools. They also may work to improve problematic areas, neighborhoods, or cities and visit with citizens to increase crime awareness and prevention. Additionally, community liaison officers may also host or attend regular community meetings.
Community liaison officers might assist with victims of crime by providing financial, legal, or law enforcement guidance. Similarly, community liaison officers support other police officers by collecting evidence, gathering facts, and interviewing witnesses. Some community liaison officers work to assimilate new members of a community to a new area.
