Also coordinated by the Community Policing component are the department’s Mountain Bike Unit, the Segway Unit, and the department’s two, state-of-the-art mobile police precincts.
The Community Policing Unit is responsible for coordinating various neighborhood programs and working with neighborhood groups to improve the overall quality of life in the targeted areas. Officers are assigned to seven districts, which comprise the Community Policing Area.
The South Norwalk Alliance meets monthly at Police Headquarters and is comprised of residents and business owners who wish to make a difference by working with the Community Policing Unit to improve the South Norwalk community. Additional members are welcome.

A Unit on the Move
The mobile precincts continue to provide an added presence in various areas of the city and are utilized as a base of operations for special walking patrols, selective enforcement efforts, and other specialized police operations.
Native grasses have a longer root system which traps runoff better, helps prevent erosion, and are therefore more drought tolerant. They also look just as beautiful as classic turf lawns (see the picture at the top of this page)! Over-seed existing lawn or creating new lawns using drought tolerant species such as Creeping Red Fescue, Tall Fescue and Ryegrass. Kentucky bluegrass has a short root system and requires more nutrients and water for vigour, so no more than 10% Kentucky blue grass is recommended.
The rain should provide sufficient watering for lawns with native grasses. However, for dry stretches of weather or for turf lawn varieties water deeply, slowly, and infrequently. This encourages roots to grow deeper and allows for better water absorption.
Still Have Questions?
Sharpen the blades and clean the mower often to reduce the chance of introducing diseases. Consider switching to a light wight mower to reduce emissions, noise, and costs.
For Lawns, mow before dandelions go to seed to prevent the spread. Try pouring a vinegar solution on them. As well as, over-seed with a native grass to crowd out the dandelions.
