Taking Every Opportunity to Create and Live in a Safe Community
National Night Out 2018
Crime Prevention Council Joins the Manassas Community for National Night Out!
Prince William Crime Prevention Council members, Federal, State and Local law enforcement, rescue services, firefighters and other community social services and leadership came together at Signal Hill Park for National Night Out. National Night Out is "America's Night Out Against Crime" when neighbors come together and take a stand against crime. The event also helps promote safety and drug awareness, strengthens community spirit, and enhances the partnership between citizens and first responders.
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.
