Crime Prevention is everybody’s job! There are many ways that crime around neighborhoods and businesses can be prevented; however, it takes the proper methods of crime prevention to ensure that the likelihood of crime is substantially lowered.
Crime prevention is the anticipation, recognition, and the initiation of action to remove or reduce crime. Prevention may take place at any given time and any given location, due to the fact that crime is not centralized in one area. Public awareness is one of the most important strategies out there for reducing crime. The more aware the people are around you, the more “eyes” you have looking out for your well being. A neighborhood watch program can be developed, or a business watch program can be implemented by neighboring businesses.
The fact of the matter is that crime prevention works. It is cheaper, it is safer, and better for the communities to prevent crime than to have to treat their victims, deal with the perpetrators, and lose productivity.
