Crime Prevention

Crime can happen anywhere, any time to anyone. You and your loved ones in the family can be victims of crime too. But you can minimize the risk of being victims by adopting simple crime prevention measures in enhancing security. Preventing crime is a primary responsibility of the Police, but success in crime prevention also depends on public support and participation. Crime prevention is NOT a sole responsibility of the Police. Crime prevention is EVERYBODY’S RESPONSIBILITY. You need to look after yourself and your valuables. The Police are fully aware that without public support and participation, the Police cannot effectively fight crime. The Police therefore introduce and promote crime prevention with the aim to persuade the community to practice crime prevention measures to protect themselves and their belongings. The Police also seek to promote and strengthen Police rapport with the population to encourage public involvement in crime prevention.

The Lyndhurst Police Crime Prevention Unit has numerous community outreach programs:

• Neighborhood Watch
• Business Watch
• Home Security Surveys
• Child ID Program
• Bicycle Rodeos
• Identity Theft
• Personal Safety
• Child Safety Seats
• Vacation Notifications
• Fatal Vision (Teen DUI Awareness)
