Community Resource Unit (CRU)

Community Resource Unit (CRU) officers encourage, educate and train Durham residents, businesses and various demographics to use best practices and strategies to deter crime and minimize opportunities for crime to occur. Year-round, CRU hosts and participates in special events, conferences, workshops, community fairs and safety education academies. This helps promote safety and advance our community-oriented policing mission. 

One CRU officer is assigned to each of the department's five police districts to develop, implement and evaluate the unit's various safety measures and programs, and to establish partnerships.
