National Crime Prevention Month has been celebrated every October since 1984 by the National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC). Each year, government agencies, civic groups, schools, businesses, and other local organizations come together to form new partnerships and educate the public about important crime prevention issues.
In addition to promoting widespread awareness, National Crime Prevention Month serves to showcase the accomplishments of various organizations who have demonstrated successful crime prevention efforts on the local, state, and national levels. By generating enthusiasm for crime prevention, this month has become a useful tool in fighting back against criminal activity.
NCPC also chose October to celebrate National Crime Prevention Month due to Halloween festivities. NCPC encourages people to take all the right safety precautions so that nothing goes wrong. Make sure your walk way and yard are trick-or-treater friendly, ask your neighborhood watch to be especially careful, and report any suspicious acts to the police or sheriff’s office right away.
