HOW TO REDUCE CRIME IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD

Published by FUN MATES PRESS

While we don't like to talk about it - or even think about it -

crime is on the increase in America, and throughout the world.

The number of burglars, muggers, auto thieves, robbers, purse

snatchers, etc. is growing at an alarming rate.  Now you, as a

resident, working with neighbors can help reduce the crime rate.

How?  By organizing and/or joining a neighborhood program in

which you and your neighbors get together to learn how to

protect yourselves, your family, your home and your property.

Working together, you can get the criminals off your block and

out of your area.

There's safety in numbers and power through working with a

group.  You'll get to know your neighbors better, and working

with them you can reduce crime, develop a more united community,

provide an avenue of communications between police and citizens,

establish on-going crime prevention techniques in your

neighborhood, and renew citizen interest in community activity.

"Citizens Safety Projects" are set up to help you do this.  It

is a joint effort between private citizens and local police.

Such programs have been started all over the country.  Maybe one

already exists in your community.

These organizations don't require frequent meetings (once a

month or so).  They don't ask anyone to take  personal risks to

prevent crime.  They leave the responsibility for catching

criminals where it belongs - with the police.  This is NOT a

"vigilante" group!

These groups gather citizens together to learn crime prevention

from local authorities.  You cooperate with your neighbors to

report suspicious activities in the neighborhood to keep an eye

on homes when the resident is away, and to keep everyone in the

area mindful of the standard precautions for property and self

that should always be taken.  Criminals avoid neighborhoods

where such groups exist.

Through cooperation with local law enforcement agencies, some of

the things you will learn - and all free - are:

1. What to do in an emergency.

2. How to best identify a suspicious person.

3. How to identify a vehicle being used in a suspected criminal

activity.

4. Signs to watch out for before entering a house or apartment

that may be in the process of being burglarized.

5. What to do in case of injury.

6. What to do about suspicious people loitering on your street.

7. How to identify stolen merchandise.

8. How to recognize auto theft in progress.

9. How to protect your house or apartment.

10. How to recognize a burglary in progress.

11. How to protect yourself and family - and much more.

It's easy to get your group started.  All you have to do is

contact your neighbors and arrange a date, place and time for

the first meeting.  Hold the meetings at your home or that of a

neighbor.  Try to plan a time that is convenient to most of your

neighbors - preferably in the evening.

Then call your local police department.  They will be happy to

give your group informal lectures, free literature - and in many

instances, window stickers and I.D. cards.  Remember, police

officers can't be everywhere.  Your cooperation with them is for

the benefit of you, your family, your neighbors and your

neighborhood.
