It was important that residents first understand that it was not the sole responsibility of the police to protect their neighborhoods. Rather, they also had to do their part. According to Sgt. Thompson, this is indeed one of the biggest hurdles law enforcement consistently faces. “In America, many people feel like their tax dollars should take care of all of their problems and they don’t think it’s their responsibility to get involved, especially when it comes to dealing with crime or problems in their neighborhoods,” said Sgt. Thompson. “In fact, many residents who have called us and asked for a solution to a community-related problem have rejected hearing that they, themselves, must be a part of that solution.” Sgt. Thompson says that educating these residents and bringing them together are keys to getting them involved and instituting change that will truly make a difference.
Stay as safe as possible during an earthquake. Be aware that some earthquakes are actually foreshocks and a larger earthquake might occur. Minimize your movements to a few steps to a nearby safe place and if you are indoors, stay there until the shaking has stopped and you are sure exiting is safe.
A reproducible brochure about the dangers and risks that gangs pose to their members and communities
Gangs are neither just a big city or inner city problem, nor are they a problem of a particular race or culture. Gangs cross all ethnic, racial, socioeconomic, gender,
and geographic boundaries. They bring fear and violence to neighborhoods, traffic in drugs, destroy property, involve youth in crime, and drive out businesses. Gangs pull teens away from school and home into a life of violence.
A CCDO sponsored publication by the National Crime Prevention Council focused on development of Anti-Gang efforts.
Young people of all socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds have been known to participate in gangs. A gang can exist in the inner city, the suburbs, even in rural counties. They often share a common purpose; engage in criminal or violent activities like drug dealing, graffiti, property crime, and gun violence; and often have a common name, symbol, or color.
i-neighbors is part of an ongoing research project at the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn). The goal of this project is to help neighborhood residents communicate, share information and become involved in their communities. Another goal is to learn more about the impact of the Internet and computer use on community life.
Our nation is built on the strength of our citizens. Every day, we encounter situations calling upon us to be the eyes and ears of law enforcement. Not only does neighborhood watch allow citizens to help in the fight against crime, it is also an opportunity for communities to bond through service. The Neighborhood Watch Program draws upon the compassion of average citizens, asking them to lend their neighbors a hand.
As budget cuts and staffing shortfalls plague law enforcement agencies nation-wide, community members worry that programs such as Neighborhood Watch, which are designed to build bonds between neighborhoods and police, will be negatively impacted. Community concerns are well-grounded, as many departments have cut or are cutting community-based programs to make up for shortages in first-responder positions—an impact of significant budget deficits.
It’s a fact—the threat of crime is part of doing business. NO business is immune from the growing menace of burglary, robbery, shoplifting, personal assaults, internal thefts, check forgery, and computer and credit card fraud. Studies have shown that at least 30 percent of all small business failures are the result of losses from crime. Hardest hit of all are retail businesses, but statistics show that ALL small businesses suffer devastating effects from crime.
Take control of what happens in your business community, and lessen your chances of becoming a victim. Through BUSINESS WATCH, you will be making crimes against yourself
and your fellow business neighbors as difficult as possible.
Thriving BUSINESS WATCH programs across the nation are deterring criminals by:
