Crime Prevention Programs

Business Watch

The Business Watch program secures and protects businesses through communication between local law enforcement and the business community while educating and training employers and employees in crime prevention measures.

Crime Stoppers

Crime Stoppers is an important tool in helping us solve crimes. It allows us to do our job more effectively by providing an opportunity for people of the community to get information to us that we might not have otherwise.

Identity Theft

Identity theft involves acquiring key pieces of someone’s identifying information to enable the identity thief to commit numerous forms of fraud. Community services officers are available to assist you with: preventative actions, what to do if you become a victim, and victim’s rights to fraudulent application information.

Neighborhood Watch

Neighborhood Watch addresses immediate crime problems, focuses on home security, builds neighborhood cohesion, and law enforcement - community partnerships. Watch groups are neighbors who look out for each other’s families and property, alert law enforcement to any suspicious activities or crime in progress, and work together to make their community a safer and better place to live.
