October is Crime Prevention Month

Each year, communities across the country celebrate October as Crime Prevention Month.  Whether your neighborhood has been hit by crime or escaped unscathed, taking part in Crime Prevention Month is a great way to help keep your community safe.

Crime prevention is everyone's business, not just a concern for law enforcement agencies.  The Department has a Crime Prevention Page which list programs available to residents including information on the Neighborhood Watch.  If you are interested in establishing a Neighborhood Watch group in your area, contact a Community Relations Officer at 847-741-2151.
