Crime Prevention is defined as " the anticipation, recognition and appraisal of a crime risk and the action to remove or reduce it ." One of the more significant components in Community Police, and vital to our alternate policing strategy, is crime prevention through education.
The Greater Sudbury Police Service is committed to the safety and security of the citizens of our community. Crime prevention through education is a significant component of this strategy. The use of community based crime prevention initiatives and safety techniques create a spirit of cooperation and affiliation between the public and the Service. This will inevitably lead to a safer environment for everyone.
The goals and objectives of the Crime Prevention Branch are to conduct programs designed to encourage business owner's involvement in crime prevention in general and to teach various methods and techniques that may be employed to guard against criminal attack. It is the Branch's principal desire to deter and prevent criminal incidents by making our citizens highly cognizant of the opportunities unconsciously offered to criminals and to instill a sense of perpetual awareness so that no incidents occur. This is accomplished through seminars, workshops, lectures, displays, resources, television and radio interviews and on-line information.
