The Ione Police Department is dedicated to building community partnerships with residents, business owners, and those who visit the City of Ione. The programs are designed to encourage conversation, education, and participation. Some nationally standardized programs, such as Coffee with a Cop and National Night Out, have been highly successful and allow opportunities for personal community engagement with officers and staff. Programs like you are not alone are here to protect and help our elderly citizens. Education is also essential in outreach programs and includes child and personal safety. Partnerships with the community and the police department best achieve Crime Prevention. Citizens taking ownership of their neighborhood combined with direct action can improve the quality of life for the citizens of Ione.
