Crime Prevention Tips

It is important to be aware that a crime can occur, anticipating the location, time, and taking action to reduce the chance of it happening. Crime prevention is key to stopping the ability and opportunity for a criminal. The use of instinct, knowledge, common sense and awareness can make you a tough target.

Three Basic Rules
