The Crime Prevention Unit, under the command of the Support Services Division’s Captain, is a proactive policing unit that consists of one fulltime certified officer. This Unit educates children in the schools and teaches the general public crime prevention tips from a list of over forty tops on ways to reduce their chances of falling victim to a crime. Monitoring and maintaining the Neighborhood Watch groups and checking local pawn shops for stolen merchandise are also among this Unit’s responsibility. This Unit also implemented Carroll County’s first Crime Stoppers program, and a Volunteering In Police Unit.
