Crime Prevention

Programs targeted to protect communities and individuals through community outreach programs, criminal information sharing systems, and preventative investigation services.

Fusion Center Investigations For the purpose of collecting and gathering threat related information concerning suspicious incidents that appear isolated but are actually part of a larger criminal enterprise, including investigating the cause and manner of death in violent or unexplained situations.
Sex Offender Registry Services For the purpose of promoting public safety and preventing further victimization through registration and classification of convicted sex offenders by risk of re-offense and degree of danger, dissemination of information on offenders who live, work and/or attend institutions of higher learning, and support for victims.
