It is unfortunate that in a country as great as America, we still have crime--crimes against people, against property and against our country. Crime prevention should be forefront in our minds.
We have to protect our homes--not only day to day, but also when we go on vacation.
We have to protect our identities. There is no denying that technology has made the world a better place, but the internet has opened our homes to a whole new world for criminals, scam artists and child predators. Technology is a wonderful thing but as the Yuma community grows larger and more complex, the challenges associated with crime prevention grow as well.
We have to protect our families. Drugs, gangs and the deterioration of families plague our country and impact our children. While the task to protect our children and teach them basic crime prevention tips seems daunting, let’s begin at home with home security tips, identity theft and vacation safety tips.
Feel free to contact this department if you would like an officer to speak to you or your group regarding crime prevention.
