Meet Your East Toledo Community Services Officer

Hello East Toledo!  My name is Tracey Britt, and I am your Community Services Officer

A little about me.... I joined TPD in October 1994 and worked Field Operations for 20 years (15 of those years on the Midnight Shift in a patrol wagon in the North End and East Side).  In 2014, I decided to work on the Day Shift, and what I saw in my district was depressing.  I saw blight, graffiti, litter, abandoned houses, crumbling buildings (all the things that aren't readily visible in the dark on midnights).  I had worked on the street for 20 years, and the streets looked WORSE than when I started.  I wanted to do something to change that, so I bid into the Community Services Section and became a CSO. 

What is a Community Services Officer?  

I see it as a cross between law enforcement and community relations. At present, there are 10 Community Services Officers, and each one is assigned to a different part of the City.  I am assigned specifically to East Toledo.  I am here to help people connect to other city departments, services, or organizations to solve problems so that our communities are stronger, safer, and more resilient.  

So What Can I Do To Help You?

Do you want to start a neighborhood organization and meet to discuss issues?  Do you want to conduct a Safety Audit of your block? Do you want to hold a monthly Neighborhood Clean-Up?  Do you have a problem property on your block that needs more attention?  What does your neighborhood need to make it better? Call me at (419) 936-3682 , or e-mail and let's work together to make your neighborhood cleaner, safer, and more valuable.
