The Southwest Team is a rapidly growing, active and vital part of the City.
The boundaries of our team begin at South 27th Street on the east border.
The north boundary runs along G Street and Capital Parkway. The always expanding
city limits are the boundaries on the West and South side of the team.
The diverse nature of our team area allows our officers the opportunity to
work with a cross section of the community that includes many cultures and
nationalitites from around the world. The types of calls for service generated
by having Bryan West hospital and the Lancaster County Crisis Center on the
team area has given our officers insight and empathy to the individuals and their
families who are affected by mental health issues.
The 36 full time employees who work for the Southwest
Team continue to work hard within the team on projects such as participation
in a Citizen Advisory Panel, the pairing of officers with elementary schools and
several Problem Oriented Policing Projects to impact area problems.
The members of the team are committed to working hand in hand with residents on issues
and concerns of the area in which they live.
