Taking Every Opportunity to Create and Live in a Safe Community
Dale City July 4th Parade 2018
A Time to Celebrate America with the Police Department and the Council
The Prince William Crime Prevention Council would like to thank all the citizens of the County who came out July 4th to celebrate our nation's Independence Day! We enjoyed meeting and talking to many of you. We hope that as of each of us remember those who have scarified so much for our freedoms, we don't forget the officers in our communities who give so much for our security. Let us all continue the work of strengthening our communities.
June marks National Gun Safety Month and the Crime Prevention Council is proud to partner with Project Child Safe to promote firearm safety and education within the community. By working together, we can ensure our communities, homes, and families remain gun safe. For resources and information on securing firearms or general firearm safety, visit Project Child Safe today!

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.
