All registrants receive a free copy of ACPI's proprietary publication The Comprehensive Crime Prevention Manual for Law Enforcement Officers and Security Personnel and The Complete Commercial and Retail Crime Prevention Manual.
Prevention is the best defense
The primary goal of law enforcement agencies should be the prevention of crime.
Crime Prevention is more than security. It is a cost-effective way of improving the quality of life for every community and its residents, and can help police establish positive relationships with the constituents you serve. Police departments cannot and should not do this alone, and must work together with communities and citizens to solve crime problems and keep neighborhoods safe.
Every law enforcement agency should have specialists trained in proactive crime prevention techniques and strategies who can coordinate with business and community leaders to implement effective crime prevention programs.
