Community Education Bureau

The Community Education and Crime Prevention Bureau provides senior and community programming; implementing personal and community safety awareness.  Members of the Community Education and Crime Prevention Bureau assist with establishing, maintaining and promoting Crime Prevention and Community Education programming.  We provide programs such as Senior Watch (call and visitation programs) Neighborhood Watch, Project Lifesaver, Business Watch, DARE.  We also offer classes and presentations, such as Identity Theft, Internet Safety, Senior Citizen Safety.

Crime Prevention means reducing the chances for criminals to victimize you, your family and neighbors.  It means protecting property and teaching kids and adults to be alert and aware.  It means doing things that build communities up and stopping things that tear communities down.
