The Delaware State Police at the Georgetown Barracks recently held a community meeting to inform the public on the job the DSP is doing to keep them safe. Captain Rodney Layfield says trooper at Troop 4 have reduced robberies by over 35% and burglaries by nearly 18%. Shoplifting has decreased by over 28%. They are also committed to suppressing and preventing crime and a year ago began several community based programs to help build trust, open lines of communication and more to make our communities as safe as possible.
Some of the most memorable events in 2017 included:
- Hosting Community Cafés at the McDonalds in Selbyville and Fenwick
- Participating at the Brandywine Assisted Living Mother’s Day Event
- Assisting with the Georgetown Elementary Career Day
- Partnering with the DSP Mounted Patrol Unit for a Camp Barnes Demonstration
- Participating in the Anti-Drug March in Georgetown
- Hosting the DSP Trunk or Treat
- Assisting with the Turkey Delivery at the Boys and Girls Club in Georgetown
These pro-active efforts not only provide the community with a better understanding of the Delaware State Police, it also enhances Troopers awareness of the various cultures that exist within the communities they serve.
We truly appreciate and thank all those in attendance for joining us to learn more about DSP T4.
