Crime Prevention Resources

Preventing crime is always preferable to charging criminals after the fact. But crime prevention is a difficult and never-ending process, requiring cooperation among all parties and the willingness to try new approaches. If you see a crime being committed or have reason to believe criminal activity is taking place in your neighborhood, call the police. Do not take the law into your own hands, though, since doing so can create legal problems or worse.

The following resources include links to crime nongovernmental organizations, federal agencies, and other entities focused on reducing or preventing crime.
