Housing Authority Liaison
The Bangor Police Department, in conjunction with the Bangor Housing Authority, developed a program where a police officer would work within Housing Authority properties in an effort to reduce the crime rate within these low-income housing projects. The duties of the officer were to work with the Housing Authority and the residents in this area.
Officer Tyler Rusby is currently assigned to this liaison position. The success for the low crime rate in these neighborhoods is due to the continued relationships with Mike Myatt, Executive Director of Bangor Housing Authority, Bangor Schools, and the residents sharing the common goal of ensuring the best quality of life for everyone who lives and works in these neighborhoods. This is the only neighborhood in the City that has a police officer dedicated to it thanks to the funding of the Bangor Housing Authority.
In addition to working in the Capehart area, Officer Rusby also assists with problems and issues in the Housing Authority properties that are throughout the city.
Officer Rusby can be contacted either through the Bangor Police Dept. at 947-7384 ext 5742 or at his Capehart office at 941-9551. He can also be reached via email at: email@example.com
