Crime Prevention Tips

Crime prevention and public education is a cross-departmental goal, and each Rosenberg Police Officer is expected to incorporate aspects of each into all that they do. The resources contained here are intended to provide basic crime prevention information.

Crime Prevention

Crime prevention is the anticipation, recognition, and appraisal of a crime risk and the initiation of an action to remove or reduce it. The goal of crime prevention is to break the crime triangle between:

  1. Victim / Target
  2. Criminal / Desire
  3. Opportunity

When you remove the opportunity, there is less crime. Remember also that the key to personal safety is awareness. Don’t give criminals the opportunity to commit a crime by being aware of your surroundings. The Rosenberg Police Department will do our best to apprehend criminals and remove them from our community.
