Crime is on the rise all around the world, but certain groups are attempting to stop this problem. These groups are working to reduce the number of crimes and hopefully prevent crime. The groups exist on the national level, state level and local level. The national groups hope to set an example for everyone, the state groups hope to reduce crime across the state, and local groups are concerned with the crimes happening in their own backyards.
Local crime prevention groups are especially adept at deterring crime. These groups teach children the right way to behave, which reduces the chances that they’ll grow up to take criminal actions. They also teach those in the community how to reduce their own chance of being a victim of crime. Locals learn how to report crimes they see occurring and take steps to prevent crime. These groups often work better than the ones at the national level do.
