The Community Action Team (CAT) is comprised of specially trained officers from the Cheyenne Police Department. CAT serves as one of the Cheyenne Police Department’s proactive community policing initiatives. The primary premise of CAT is to focus on the root-causes of problems and identify how these problems are associated with other crimes. CAT members will spend a great deal of time gathering information on specific issues through various connections with the public and other law enforcement organizations.
CAT members work closely with schools, businesses and citizen groups to solve problems. By targeting the root-cause of a problem, CAT members are able to impact the problem before it spreads. The partnerships formed by CAT will foster trust between the community and our organization.
