Crime prevention is everyone’s responsibility. It’s a partnership with the community. The police department’s role is to provide the information and tools you need to choose to not be a victim.
The program includes the If You Like It, Lock It anti-vehicle burglary program, business and residential security surveys, National Night Out, Neighborhood Watch, Stranger Danger, Child Find / Fingerprinting, Child Safety Programs, Bicycle Safety, Bicycle Rodeo, and the Teddy Bear Program.
Scam Awareness Alliance
The Scam Awareness Alliance aims to reduce the effectiveness of scams by spotlighting the tricks and scenarios fraudsters use. Don’t stop being kind or giving, but learn the “red flags” of scams and practice safe habits that may keep you, or someone you love, from becoming a statistic. The Alliance has posted 3 videos depicting scams - the lottery, romance, and a person in need. Go to the Scam Awareness Alliance website.

Each week, crime prevention and/ or safety topics are posted by the Community Resource Officer.
