Oxford Housing Authority's Community Policing Program began in 1989 as a joint effort between the Authority and Oxford Police Department to rid our public housing communities of any problems. The Community Policing Program was so successful that the Oxford Police Department made the public housing police officers a division within the Department. Today, the Public Housing Division of the Oxford Police Department has three substations. The Oxford Police Department is regularly quoted as saying that our public housing communities are among the safest communities in the City of Oxford. Our Housing Police are very active in the community. They organize several different events for the children and elderly throughout the year.
We also have numerous other programs that are in place to assist the children in our community. We have tutoring on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for children between the ages of K-6th grade. We also have activities for children on Thursday in our conference room at C.B. Webb. Every year the Housing Officers deliver gift baskets to our elderly residents. The Housing Authority and our officers are committed to our community and our residents.
