The Ohio Crime Prevention Association will be offering a three-day Introduction to Crime Prevention Course for sworn and non-sworn professionals interested in beginning crime initiatives or those interested in refreshing their knowledge.
Effective Crime Prevention has been seen as a key strategy in reducing crime and violence in our communities. This comprehensive course is designed to address local community needs ranging from physical security to violence prevention.
This 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 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.
TOPICS TO BE COVERED INCLUDE:

You're invited to the next Central Ohio District 1 meeting!
On Thursday, October 7th at 10:00 AM we will be meeting at the Columbus Police Heliport. After our meeting and networking session, we will be met by representatives from the division's aviation unit for a tour of the facility and aircraft. If you ever wanted to get up close and personal to the chopper or if you had a question for the pilot or tactical flight officer, this would be your opportunity.
The heliport is located near the State of Ohio Department of Public Safety building on Columbus' westside. This is a secure facility so we will have to meet in the heliport parking lot before 10AM and go in together.
We will be covering conference materials and soliciting any member with an interest in being the next District 1 OCPA Representative.
