Taking Every Opportunity to Create and Live in a Safe Community
National Night Out 2016
An Amazing Night for the Community and for Law Enforcement!
The Prince William Crime Prevention Council would like to thank all the citizens of the County who came out last night to celebrate the 2016 National Night Out! We enjoyed meeting and talking to many of you. We hope that the community will assist the Council's efforts to stop and prevent bullying by sharing the information we distributed with friends and neighbors. Thank you to Paytonsproject.org for helping spread the word! We also extend our sincerest appreciation to the City of Manassas Park Police Department for hosting this year's event. The combined participation of local, State, Federal Agencies, and public service organizations shows what we can accomplish together when we work together. It was an amazing night for the Community and for Law Enforcement! Let us all continue the work of strengthening our communities.
Contrary to popular belief, the great majority of violent incidents in the workplace are perpetrated by outsiders; strangers intending to commit a crime, rather than employees.
For example, according to the Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics, most workplace homicides are committed by robbers trying to steal from the business, not by current or former employees. Do you know what to do? We encourage you to view this very informative video. Exercise YOUR options: RUN – HIDE – FIGHT!
