Security Evaluation

Tips for Your Home
Crime Prevention defined is the anticipation, recognition, and appraisal of crime risk and the initiation of some action to remove or reduce it.
While law enforcement and other social forces may reduce the desire to commit crime, crime prevention techniques lend themselves well to reducing the opportunity. Criminal opportunity is manifested in crime hazards or crime risks such as dark streets, unprotected buildings, or any other area where crime risks are heightened because of a lack of security planning. Realizing criminals generally take the path of least resistance, it is reasonable to believe that a relationship exists between the number of opportunities at a given location and the number of criminal attacks occurring at that point. 
With a concerted effort between the citizens of Morrisville and the Morrisville Police Department, the risk or opportunity to commit criminal activity can be significantly reduced. It is paramount however that the citizens participate in this effort in order to achieve success.
