Crime Prevention is the anticipation, recognition, and appraisal of a crime risk and the initiation of some action to remove or reduce it.
The ultimate goal of crime prevention is to reduce the risk of being a victim. In order to accomplish this effectively, it is important to remove opportunities for a criminal to take advantage of you or your property.
Successful crime prevention efforts will promote a safer community by enhancing the perception of safety and the attitudes and behaviors that help people feel safe.
Although the UL Police Department works very hard to create the safest environment possible, it is very important to remember that all citizens play a vital part in crime prevention. Crime prevention is truly a Police-Community partnership. By working together, we can reduce crime and enhance the quality of life.
