The Claremore Police Department offers several Crime Prevention programs covering safety and security issues. Please call 918-341-1212 for more information or to schedule a demonstration.
The following programs are currently offered by our department:
Unfortunately, senior citizens are frequently targeted by criminals and unknowingly become victims of crime. Our department strives to educate our senior population with crime information regarding fraud, scams and other types of crimes that target seniors. If you would like more information on these efforts, contact Officer Brian Burnett.
The Rape Aggression Defense Systems (RAD) program is a women-only training that teaches proven techniques, tactics and awareness, risk-reduction, avoidance and offers unique insights about the problem of violence against women. Training includes hands-on and simulated scenarios that will teach each participant the necessary skills to defend themselves and techniques on how to escape from an attacker. If you are interested in attending or sponsoring a class please contact Investigator Cassie Grettner.
The House Watch program is designed to aid residents while they are away from home for extended periods of time due to vacation, illness, work-related travel or extenuating circumstances. The Police Department will make periodic checks of your residence while it is vacant. This program is a public service to help safeguard citizen’s property and allow for a rapid response and owner notification in the event of a problem. If you would like to have your property added to our House Watch list, call 918-341-1212.
The Neighborhood Watch initiative organizes neighbors and helps teach them how to remain vigilant about the activities that take place within their neighborhood. Neighborhood watches help reduce the fear and incidence of crime, making Claremore a safer place to live, work and play. If you would like to organize a neighborhood watch program in your area, contact Officer Brian Burnett.
The Claremore Police Department conducts annual visits to each of the Claremore Elementary Schools and offers to take the fingerprints and a photograph of each 4th-grade student. These items are then placed in a booklet for the parents to keep updated and in a safe place. It is our hope that these booklets will not be needed, but in the event a child is missing, they will provide all necessary information for law enforcement to quickly attempt to locate your child. This is a voluntary program and is done only with parent or guardian approval.
The Claremore Police Department encourages business owners to update their emergency contact information anytime the business changes ownership, it gets a new alarm company or when there is a change to a key contact.
