November 1-7 is earmarked as Provincial Crime Prevention Week. This week is an important time to recognize the great success New Westminster has achieved in reducing crime and creating a safe community. At the heart of every successful city are people who recognize the responsibility in participating to reduce the risk and fear of crime in their community. New Westminster Police is continually working to enhance your safety, build partnerships, and reduce crime by working cooperatively. In recognition of our successful and safe community, and in a bid to keep crime out, we must continue to preserve our community safety. So reduce the chance of being a victim by looking at the latest crime reduction strategies at British Columbia Crime Prevention Association’s website at www.bccpa.org or the NWPD website.
