Community Services Officers (CSO) & Community Safety Specialists (CSS)
The Public Safety & Community Services Department's Public Safety Division is comprised of two groups: the Community Safety Specialists (CSS)/Community Services Officers (CSO) and the Animal Control Officers. The Community Safety Specialist (CSS) group is comprised of former law enforcement professionals. Together with the Community Services Officers (CSO), they are tasked with responding to all non-emergent requests for service from the public. The Animal Control Officers handle all animal (except rodents or insects) problems within the city.
