Community Response Team

2 Officers giving directionsThe Community Response Team (CRT) manages a caseload pertaining mainly to "quality of life" issues and offenses. CRT cases are quite varied, usually involve neighborhood complaints or disputes, and have included such issues as drug dealing, offensive animals, and chronically loud parties or music.

The CRT works with the community to solve problems, utilizing both traditional and non-traditional means. Traditional methods include arrests and citations while non-traditional tactics can include administrative fines or mediation. In many instances, the CRT uses state and/or City public nuisance laws and regulations to hold property owners accountable for unresolved problems. The CRT works very closely with other Santa Clara Police units and City Departments, allied law enforcement agencies, State agencies, and Federal agencies to creatively and effectively solve problems.
