Crime Prevention is defined as The Anticipation, Recognition and Appraisal of a crime risk and the Initiation of some action to remove or reduce it." The formula for a crime to take place is as follows: Desire + Ability + Opportunity = Crime If You take away any one of those key factors, the criminal element will be nonexistent! The job of the Crime Prevention Program is to educate citizens and business owners of this Township in different forms of Crime Prevention.
