  CRIME PREVENTION

 

 

 

CRIME PREVENTION

 

Crime prevention is,“the anticipation recognition and appraisal of a crime risk and the action taken to remove or reduce it.” Crime prevention encompasses many aspects of policing with the intention of reducing crime and increasing citizens’ feelings of security.  This is accomplished through programs that directly deter criminal activities or through policies and interventions that reduce the potential for crime in our communities.

 

In the Hamilton Police Service, Crime Prevention takes on the wider goal of working in partnership with our communities to develop and implement programs that promote safety and positive relationships throughout the community.  Crime Prevention is closely tied to Community Services in providing quality service and information to the public.

 

**Hamilton Police are available for school and community presentations on a variety of school and crime prevention topics.  Please contact Lindsay Sindrey at 905-546-4900, or email lsindrey@hamiltonpolice.on.ca for more information.**
