What is Crime Prevention?  
It’s the anticipation, recognition, and appraisal of a crime risk, and the initiation of some action to remove or reduce it. The Crime Prevention Officer's position is to work with the community, get the community involved in law enforcement, and be a readily available resource to the community for its safety needs. This involvement can be with individuals, civic groups, or businesses. The primary focus of this program is to go to these individuals or groups and give recommendations on personal, residential, and business safety.

Some of the programs that are available through the Greenburgh Police Department Crime Prevention Unit are:

  • Explorer Youth Program
  • Community Emergency Response Team
  • Neighborhood Watch
  • Residential and Business Security Surveys
  • Child Passenger Safety Seat Inspections
  • Safety Fairs
  • Safety Talks
  • Emergency Preparedness Seminars
  • Cell phone donation and 911 distribution program 

Crime Prevention is not new, but we need your help in fighting crime.



Please feel free to contact the Greenburgh Police Department’s Crime Prevention Unit for your safety needs.
