Mission Statement

Officers Standing We are committed to leading the community problem-solving efforts that improve the quality of life for all citizens of Fayetteville. We will work assertively with the community to address the underlying conditions that lead to crime and disorder.

Fayetteville District Policing Team
A system of providing police services, in partnership with the community, in order to identify neighborhood quality of life issues and provide appropriate response to those issues by police and other service providers.

Problem-Oriented Policing
