Crime Prevention Month: Info on Hate Crimes/Online Bullying
October is National Crime Prevention Month
As the Metropolitan "DC" Police Department kicks off National Crime Prevention Month 2010, we invite you to share our daily Crime Prevention Safety Tips, Brochures, and/or Videos with members of your family, your neighborhood, social groups, schools, churches, etc.
We will send printer-friendly brochures that can be forwarded or copied and easily shared. Your help in assisting us with promoting safety awareness for all age groups is greatly appreciated.
Just as we did last year, all month long, we will share with you information from law enforcement and crime prevention agencies from around the world. In addition, we will share safety information, based on recent crime trends. Throughout the month, we will also host live chats, school and neighborhood presentations, as well as safety events, which will conclude with our annual Halloween Safe Haven parties at each police district and the award-winning First District Police Station Haunted House Tour. Information on these events will be published on MPD’s listserv groups and website.
Thank you for your continued partnership with the Metropolitan "DC" Police Department.
