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, safety education academies, etc., to promote safety and advance the police department's 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 in the district that will help to advance the department's safety goals and yield positive outcomes. The unit is managed by a sergeant and a corporal.
