Although law enforcement is highly trained today in the field of crime prevention, it is completely unrealistic for society to rely completely upon law enforcement for protection. It is imperative that all citizens become crime conscious and implement security precautions that will significantly reduce criminal opportunities. A concerted effort on citizens' part combined with the services of law enforcement can provide a viable team that can and will impact crime. There are active prevention programs in the City that can help your home or business.
