Due to the snow, two trainings in January were cancelled. The next trainings are listed below. The one hour Crime Prevention/Neighborhood Watch Training is intended for residents to learn ways to lower their likelihood of becoming a victim of crime. More than 80% of the crime in DC is Crime of Opportunity. These are crimes that are preventable through education and through changing simple behaviors. They are crimes such as leaving a purse visible in a vehicle or in a shopping cart unattended leading to a Theft From Auto or a Theft. Also, allowing newspapers to pile up in the front of a home while the residents are away on vacation which leads to a Burglary. How to start a Neighborhood Watch Program and the responsibilities of the block captain also will be discussed.
The trainings are free and open to anyone interested in helping DC reduce crime as well as reducing their own likelihood of becoming a victim.
