October is National Crime Prevention Month. While crime prevention is always a top priority, a designated month is a way to bring greater awareness in local communities. At Tary Insurance, we are focused on keeping our citizens safe and helping our community grow.
National Crime Prevention Month
Started in 1984 by a Presidential proclamation, Crime Prevention Month is celebrated nationwide. As law enforcement budgets get reduced, the role of locals increases as they see problems that need to be addressed. Creating awareness helps us all stay involved in the community.
National Crime Prevention Council
The mascot McGruff the Crime Dog and the slogan “Take A Bite Out Of Crime” is iconic at school gatherings and on television commercials. He has been able to help connect children with the importance of community involvement. For more than 40 years the National Crime Prevention Council has worked with local law enforcement, government agencies, civic groups, schools and other organizations of crime prevention and personal safety. Their contribution through the years is invaluable.
This month we bring awareness to problems like burglary, identity theft, gang prevention and the safe storage of firearms. Every community can relate to these issues and it’s important as Nevadans that we come together as one.
A few ways to get involved include talking with your neighbors about the area, speaking with local law enforcement and volunteering at community events. We never know what information we will hear or who we may be able to help along the way. This small contribution of your time helps keep you informed and involved.
