Many resources are available that provide guidelines for crime prevention. The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department has published a crime prevention tips brochure that is available in .pdf format from this website.
In addition, the National Crime Prevention Council is a leader in helping people keep themselves, their families, and their communities safe from crime. To achieve this, NCPC produces tools that communities can use to learn crime prevention strategies, engage community members, and coordinate with local agencies.
Your district's CrimeWatch Coordinator can also be contacted for more information.
