Our mission here at District 5 is to bring you quality Police service that you can depend on during your time of need.  District 5 is also an active member of the community we serve.  Here at District 5 we have the District 5 Citizens’ Advisory Council (CAC).  The CAC consists of citizens representing a cross-section of neighborhoods who work hand-in-hand with the Police on safety issues facing their communities.  The objective of the CAC is to develop, maintain and enhance the Police/Community relationship.  Anyone who is a resident or has a business in the District 5 area is welcome to attend.  The meetings are held the third Tuesday of each month at the District 5 Police Station at 7 PM. 

District 5 Police Officers are also active participants in the District 5 Coffee Club.  The Coffee Club is a non-partisan public forum for all citizens, business owners, organizations and public officials who share the goal of working together to build a stronger, safer community.  The Coffee Club is led by a concerned group of District 5 citizens.  The Coffee Club meets every Wednesday at the Safeway in the Woodrow Crossing Shopping Center in Clinton.  The Coffee Club meetings start at 9 AM.
