Safety and Crime Prevention

Crime Prevention, Safety & Other Support


The Charities also supports initiatives that help the police department prevent crime, improve community safety and otherwise do a better job of policing in Dover.  Examples of some of the things the Charities has done include:


  • Helped the Police Department buy the first horse for the Mounted Patrol when it was started and has received donations to support the Mounted Patrol even since.

  • Provides support each year for Dover Crimeline, a non-profit organization established to help promote law and order in our community by bringing citizens, police and the media together in a coordinated effort to solve crimes through an anonymous awards program.

  • Supports the Senior Volunteer Program, an opportunity for older retired individuals to contribute to the community by assisting the Police Department in a variety of non-enforcement activities.

  • And provides support for many other events or activities.
