The commission's objective is to act as a facilitator on community wide crime prevention programs. This is done by incorporating active participation by our citizens, businesses and the police department. It will furnish resources to increase awareness; help reduce crime; and provide open communications between the community and its police department.
The goals are to create an environment where people care about each other and their respective neighborhoods, enhancing the quality of life and reduce crime by becoming the eyes and ears for law enforcement. As neighborhood watch groups you are asked not to assume the role of the police department, but report the activity in your neighborhood.
- The Crime Prevention Commission has monthly meetings, at 7:00 pm, open to all who wish to attend they are normally scheduled on the third Monday of the month baring holidays. For the next meeting date and location as well as a link to the agenda (posted one week in advance) please check the Crime Prevention Commission Calendar.
