By educating the community on crime prevention techniques and getting citizens involved in crime prevention activities, we can reduce the number of crimes in Boynton Beach and increase the quality of life for its citizens.

Pro-active Crime Prevention Activities

We offer free home/business security surveys, C.A.T. - combat auto theft, Operation ID and Juvenile Education Programs. CPTED - The Safer by Design philosophy recognizes that neighborhood environments can either encourage or discourage criminal activity. The Crime Prevention Unit also coordinates the Boynton Beach Police Department's Citizen's Police Academy. This program exposes citizens to the responsibilities of each element of the department, and aids them in gaining a more realistic appreciation of the practices of policing our community.

Speaker's Bureau

The Crime Prevention Unit acts as the speaker's bureau for the police department by providing a variety of subjects for presentations to citizen groups. Some of the topics include personal safety, burglary prevention, identity theft, holiday safety, internet safety for kids and gang awareness.

 

Vial of Life Project

We proudly offer Vial of Life decals to our community for free. We feel that the Vial of Life Project is a most important program for protecting seniors and others in need.

We would like to thank American Senior Safety Medical Alarm Systems for donating these kits to our organization.
