The purpose and goal of the Wylie Police Department's Community Resource and Crisis Assistance Program is to assist citizens in the attempt to prevent future crisis events and provide a resource to the community. This is achieved through a follow-up of personal or family support and assistance in an attempt to reach the quality of life a Wylie resident deserves. The program provides updated, accurate and appropriate care and support to victims of crime and those in crisis.
