Crime Prevention & Safety


In order for crime to occur, three elements must be present:
  • Ability
  • Desire
  • Opportunity
These elements can be depicted as a triangle, a "crime triangle." By removing the opportunity for a criminal to commit a crime we break the crime triangle and make it much more difficult for a criminal to operate in our community. The main objective of crime prevention is to reduce the opportunity for crime.
