INTRODUCTION TO CRIME PREVENTION will not be held during the conference

The OCPA  is holding the three-day, Introduction to Crime Prevention course throughout the State of Ohio during the year, but will not hold a course during the 2023 conference in April.  Refer to the training section of this website for upcoming courses in your area.

Effective crime prevention has been seen as a key strategy in reducing crime and violence in our communities.  The course is tailored to the needs of today's crime prevention and community policing practitioners, and places great emphasis on programmatic initiatives, giving the practitioners the knowledge, tools and resources to do their jobs successfully.

Crime Prevention is the anticipation, recognition and the appraisal of a crime risk and the initiation of some action to remove or reduce it. Crime Prevention means working in partnership, rather than in isolation, and working with concerned citizens to address ways to prevent crime and drug abuse. It means communities and individual citizens learning how to protect themselves and to work together to keep their neighborhoods crime and drug free. It means law enforcement working with communities, businesses, and service organizations to develop action plans based on information about crime and other problems.
