Crime Prevention Strategy

Submitted by: Crime Prevention Committee

CPC.05.22

WHEREAS, the prevention of crime is fundamental to a free and safe society; and therefore, sustaining and maintaining the quality of life in communities worldwide is in the interest of every citizen; and

WHEREAS, the IACP has championed the value of Crime Prevention Programs in modern law enforcement; and has taken a leadership role in the prevention of crime and adopted the slogan that “Community safety is everybody's responsibility and crime prevention is everyone's business”; and

WHEREAS, it is incumbent upon every police agency to effectively and efficiently address the concerns of the community it serves. Crime Prevention programs can rally community support by encouraging and empowering the community to recognize and resolve issues of crime and safety; and

WHEREAS, crime prevention establishes an organizational framework and an environment for individual development, job enrichment, and personal satisfaction for law enforcement practitioners at every level; and

WHEREAS, the IACP has long recognized that successful Crime Prevention Techniques require the support of all public, private and community agencies; therefore, be it 

RESOLVED, that the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) reaffirms its commitment to Crime Prevention and encourages every police executive to embrace Crime Prevention as a guiding philosophy to support and promote crime prevention as a key element of effective policing; and be it 

FURTHER RESOLVED, that the IACP endorses the concept that community safety and crime prevention are linked together, and that the IACP is committed to lead a collaborative effort among all crime prevention practitioners to share crime prevention leading practices.
