Crime Suppression Unit

The Crime Suppression Unit (CSU) is a highly visible and proactive policing unit that focuses on enforcement in high crime areas in Rancho Cordova to continue to improve quality of life for our residents and businesses. These areas are identified based on crime analysis, including calls for service and other intelligence, as well as community tips and complaints. Once these areas have been identified, CSU proactively hits the street to conduct enforcement.

CSU’s proactive enforcement activities include making arrests, contacting individuals on probation or parole, and removing weapons, illicit drugs and contraband off the streets. CSU regularly collaborates with the Investigations Unit to investigate and solve major cases due to their extensive knowledge of criminals who have been arrested. In addition, CSU proactively addresses series of crimes through special programs, such as its bait package program which helps to prevent package thefts during the holiday season. 

CSU is largely funded by the City of Rancho Cordova’s Community Enhancement Fund, which is supported by a ½ cent, voter-approved sales tax. The Community Enhancement Fund provides an additional $1.1 million in funding to the $22.8 million annual police budget during the 2019/2020 fiscal year.
