The Crime Reduction Unit (CRU) was created in June of 2017. The CRU provides a proactive problem solving unit to serve the citizens of our community. The team is designed to problem solve issues relating to citizens or residences in our community who have a higher need for government services. This unit excels with the partnerships they have made with many different organizations to include non-profit organizations.
Since its creation, the CRU has shown to be a tremendous asset to the Mesa County Sheriff's Office and the citizens of our community. They have assisted many citizens and neighborhoods by providing long term solutions to many complex problems.
The mission of the CRU is to reduce crime and improve the quality of life by partnering with our citizens utilizing innovative, long term, problem oriented policing practices.
