Helping Prevent Crime Is a Job for Everyone
Law enforcement and the judicial system alone can’t solve the crime problem. Citizen efforts are the key to crime prevention.
Break-ins happen much more frequently than most people think - and it's always a devastating experience. The Safety, Health & Consumer Council has developed a guide as a way to help promote safety and prevention awareness. This guide includes key steps and preventive measures that can go a long way in keeping home safe and secure while everyone is away.

The mission of the crime prevention unit is to assist the Scott County Sheriff’s Office in the overall effort of reducing crime, and to increase citizen safety through crime prevention information, training and services to the community.
