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   tracey.britt@toledo.oh.gov and let's work together to make your neighborhood cleaner, safer, and more valuable.

-Never leave the registration or title in your car. If stolen, it makes it easier for the thief to dispose of your vehicle. 
- Be alert when approaching your car, have a plan of action, and have your keys in your hand. Check around, under and in your vehicle for suspicious individuals.
-Only park your car in busy, well-lighted areas.

If you're in an area prone to severe winters, the best way to prepare is to create a communication plan and gather all necessary supplies in advance. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recommends obtaining all items on your checklist before the storm arrives. This can help mitigate stress and fear for you and your family so that you can enjoy your time together safely inside.
