Crime Prevention

Crime Prevention Overview

The Crime Prevention Unit, staffed by 4 officers who work with neighborhoods, community groups, and businesses to establish Neighborhood Watch and Business Watch programs.

The Crime Prevention Unit also works to make the community safer through the quality education seminars we provide to all neighborhood associations and civic associations in the city. We teach people how to recognize and report crime in their neighborhoods or around your businesses. We conduct FREE residential and business security surveys for residences and businesses within the city to show people how make their homes and businesses more secure and how to record information about their property that will make it easier for us to identify items that have been stolen. We offer seminars on a wide variety of crime topics.

The Crime Prevention Unit, to ensure compliance with the Florida Convenience Business Security Act, also administers security surveys to convenience stores within the city under the auspice of the Florida Attorney General's Office.

We believe that through education the community becomes a safer place for everyone.
