In 2019, MetroWest marked the sixth year of our community partnership with Critical Intervention Services (CIS), a Florida‐based company that specializes in enhancing public safety. MetroWest Public Safety Officers (PSO) serve as community liaisons, building relationships with community members, businesses, the Orlando Police Department (OPD), and other law enforcement officials and entities.
Over the past year, MetroWest PSOs were involved in more than 22,000 community/business contacts within MetroWest, a clear indication that the program is unifying owners, businesses, managers and residents to promote the highest standards of public safety.
Also in 2019, MWMA and CIS continued to facilitate the process by which MetroWest communities can implement the principles of Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) in order to achieve Crime Free Certification from OPD. This year, three more MetroWest communities were recognized and congratulated for having received Crime Free Certification.
We envision continued success in 2020 and appreciate the support of all our neighbors who strive to ensure the safety of MetroWest residents, businesses and visitors.
