Crime Prevention

What is crime prevention?

It is the anticipation, recognition, and appraisal of a crime risk and the initiation of some action to remove or reduce it.

The Burlington Police Department's Crime Prevention Unit offers a number of crime prevention programs that help promote and improve safety for community groups and individuals. Officers provide educational resources and programs to assist those interested in learning more about crime prevention. Our goal is to provide the educational opportunists for citizens to remove or reduce crime risk.

Our professionally trained Crime Prevention Specialist can assist our citizens with home or business security surveys. The specialists provide the latest crime prevention through environmental designed tips and strategies for how to protect your home or business.
