Neighborhood Preservation Unit (NPU)

The Neighborhood Preservation Unit (NPU) enforces city code and nuisance ordinance violations, concentrating on drug/party houses, illegal accessory apartments, cluttered and junky yards, abandoned vehicles, health issues, illegal businesses, alcohol compliance, and graffiti.

NPU officers drive pickup trucks which are marked with the department logo and equipped with overhead lights and sirens.

NPU officers serve many search warrants on known party and drug houses to arrest criminals and stop illegal activity. They work closely with property owners to clean up and address violations.
