Lubbock Police Department is finding innovative ways to serve and protect

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

The Lubbock Police Department wants to hear your concerns and provide the resources to keep your neighborhood safe. The mobile command unit will visit different neighborhoods in an effort to understand issues and concerns in those specific areas. The mobile command unit will be stationed near 54th and Avenue Q this week to find innovative ways to protect and serve.

"You know I can sit and look at numbers and charts and crime trends and all that all day long, but that only gives you part of the picture, just a piece of the puzzle," said police chief, Greg Stevens. "So we want to get a lot more feedback than that and it also gives us the chance to gather more data and more stats."

Stevens said the neighborhoods around 50th and Q is a strategic location for the first deployment. He cites the neighborhood's high call volume, traffic, and dense population. LPD has conducted deployments similar to these in the past and the feedback has varied.

"It's one of those things that it really just depends on a lot of factors," said Stevens. "It depends on the days of the week, it depends on how much folks participate with us, the weather I mean you name it, it depends, so varying levels of success that we've had."

The mobile command center includes members from all units within LPD from investigations to crime analysis, crime prevention to neighborhood services. They'll be stationed at the Briercroft shopping center for the next few days from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. through Thursday. The next neighborhood deployment hasn't been scheduled.
