ADT Co-Sponsors Crime Prevention Kit for Children
The National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) announces the release of its 2007-2008 Crime Prevention Month Kit in preparation for the 23rd annual Crime Prevention Month this October. This year’s kit, “Protecting Children and Youth From Crime,” includes a calendar with crime prevention strategies and provides materials designed to help educate people who care for children and youth.
“Protecting children and youth from crime is one of society’s most important priorities and one of the four strategic goals of NCPC,” says Alfonso Lenhardt, NCPC president and CEO. “One of the best ways to do this is to teach kids sound crime prevention habits and encourage them to share these habits with friends, family, and their entire peer group.”
ADT Security Services and the Bureau of Justice Assistance, U.S. Department of Justice, are co-sponsoring the kit. The kit is designed to provide crime prevention information on a range of issues. The Crime Prevention Month Kit is distributed to more than 85,000 law enforcement personnel, crime prevention practitioners, neighborhood watch groups, schools, libraries and businesses across the country.
“As the first corporate sponsor of NCPC, ADT recognizes the importance and value of the educational materials the NCPC produces and makes available to communities across the country,” says Ann Lindstrom, director of corporate communications for ADT. “This kit is used nationwide by law enforcement and local ADT representatives who are committed to bringing crime prevention education to their communities.”
Crime Prevention Month was created to recognize and celebrate the practice of crime prevention, while raising awareness of important issues such as reducing victimization, promoting community-police relations and increasing community volunteerism. The month-long celebration spotlights successful crime prevention efforts on the local, state and national levels.
