Crime prevention is the concerted effort of individuals, communities, businesses, police services and government agencies working together to address the root causes of crime. It’s important to prevent crime before it occurs by working with community organizations who are involved in creating safer communities. Everywhere in Nova Scotia, communities are taking a pro-active and preventative approach to crime and we are supporting them.
