Community and Crime Prevention Branch

The Community & Crime Prevention Branch is responsible for the planning and implementation of informational and educational workshops and activities focused on community crime prevention. While criminal justice agencies can respond to crimes, it is the neighborhoods and communities that can help to prevent and reduce crimes. This is facilitated by the Branch providing information and training on how individuals, businesses, agencies/organizations, and communities can get involved.
