Quogue Village Celebrates Safe Communities Month

Educating residents on how to continue to live in a crime-free village

Start Date: October 1, 2008
City, State: Quogue Village , NY
Intended audience(s):
Business owners, Children, K-12 school faculty or administrators, Local elected officials, Local government agency officials (other than public safety), Members of civic organizations, Parents, Senior citizens

Throughout the year, as a police officer  in this beautiful village, I educate the children of the elementary school about Halloween safety, bike safety, stranger danger, and make sure they know that the police officer is their friend.  Although our village seems to have a reputation of being a summer vacation place, it is very important to keep the year-round residents educated about how to live in a crime-free community. It's also important to keep our vacationers feeling as safe as they always have been in the past. Crime Prevention Month will be an opportunity for me, as the crime prevention officer, to go throughout the community and try to remind everyone to check in on elderly neighbors, check in on the houses that may be empty throughout the winter, and report any suspicious activity to the local police department. I would like to hold a crime prevention  seminar in the local village hall and explain to the residents the importance of keeping our village a safe community and ways to do that, by showing a PowerPoint presentation and by providing handouts, coloring books for the kids, and literature on crime prevention.
