“CRIME PREVENTION”, by formal definition, is the anticipation, recognition and the appraisal of crime risk and the initiation of some action to remove or reduce it. In practical application, crime prevention is a pattern of attitudes and behaviors directed both at reducing the threat of crime and enhancing the sense of safety and security, to positively influence the quality of life in our society, and to help develop environments where crime cannot flourish.
The Brown Deer Police Department is involved in the following crime prevention programs.
- Neighborhood Watch
- Brown Deer’s Night Out For Justice
- Retail Theft Prevention
- Business Security Surveys
- Residential Security Surveys
- Crime Prevention Tips
- Coffee With A Cop
- Community Outreach
Our Crime Prevention Officers hold monthly meetings with Loss Prevention personnel from area retailers in an effort to apprehend offenders and reduce the number of retail thefts.
