OCCOQUAN SHIELD The Occoquan Police Department’s (OPD) SHIELD program is the platform between the community we serve and the Occoquan Police Department that allows information and intelligence to flow back and forth. The key to success is information flowing in two directions. Community partners serve as the eyes and ears of the OPD and serve to directly impact efforts to prevent crime and acts of terrorism by reporting suspicious behavior as soon as possible. We recognize that our community partners are uniquely qualified to assist OPD personnel during an incident. You know what belongs and what is out of place. Sharing your perspective and working together, we are better prepared to face the most difficult challenges. Within the OPD SHIELD program several initiatives are housed:
  • The OPD Community SHIELD Liaison Initiative
  • The OPD “See Something/Say Something” and Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR) Initiatives
  • The OPD Neighborhood Watch, Business Watch, Worship Watch, and Dog Walker Watch Initiatives

The OPD SHIELD Program keeps its partners informed of upcoming events, new intelligence and crime/terrorism related information developing within the Town of Occoquan and the region. To register to become a member of the OPD SHIELD program please complete the application HERE
