Crime Prevention

Crime Prevention reduces the opportunity for crime, helps people understand fear of crime vs. reality of crime, and increases neighborhood livability. The following resources are available to help residents, businesses, rental property owners, the faith communities, neighborhood associations, and others reduce the opportunities for crime, build communities where residents are aware and work together, and work with the police and others agencies in the city to address issues.
