The FlatIron Services Unit is responsible for policing the FlatIron Crossing Mall and adjoining Main Street and Marketplace developments. Officers are stationed in the Flatiron Crossing Village area, which is a "downtown street" area that leads directly into the traditional mall. Uniformed patrol of the area is conducted not only in marked police vehicles, but also on bicycles and on foot.
Customized policing strategies have been developed to deter crime and establish acceptable behavior in the area. Officers focus on problem solving and prevention, and rely on good working relationships and partnerships with business owners and merchants to identify potential problems and develop crime prevention tactics.
