In 1984, October was designated as Crime Prevention Month through a Presidential proclamation. Since then, the National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) has been working with local law enforcement, government agencies, civic groups, schools, businesses and other organizations to help them spread the word about crime prevention and personal safety.
With shrinking law enforcement budgets across the country and lack of new recruits, the role that each of us can play in preventing crime is more important than ever.
Each week in October we will highlight a different theme.
The latest resource put out by NCPC is information on scams and getting duped. Check out this “GO FOR REAL” resource by clicking this link: https://www.ncpc.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/GFR-Dupe-Detector-Kit.pdf
