Neighborhood Patrol Office

Amarillo Police Department KGNCNEWSNOW.COM

The Bethesda Outreach Center will be the new home of an Eastridge neighborhood patrol office.

Amarillo Police say the new office will help to break the misconception of what law enforcement does to refugees.

The department will offer classes on travel laws, domestic violence, and human trafficking, as well as how to act during a traffic stop.

The APD will also be helping Refugee Services of Texas in orientation programs.

Officers will welcome refugees to the city when they land at the airport to make a welcoming impression, and they feel that this will earn their trust when it comes to reporting crime.

The new Center will be open next month.
