Crime Prevention

Crime Prevention Definition

The most widely accepted definition of crime prevention is: the anticipation, recognition and appraisal of a crime risk and the initiation of some action to remove or reduce it.

Crime Prevention Goal

The goal of Crime Prevention is to maintain strong police-community relations through informational and education programs and services that positively influence the quality of life in our community by:
  • Reducing crime or the fear of crime.
  • Increasing the knowledge of citizens in "pro-active" crime prevention strategies.
  • Training the community in a wide-array of crime prevention approaches.
  • Providing home and business security assessments.
  • Encouraging and training citizens to participate in "Watch" activities.
