Basic crime prevention classes offered
From staff reports
Residents of several city neighborhoods can learn more about ways to reduce crime, such as by changing landscaping and lighting.
It’s called crime prevention through environmental design by applying physical design, citizen participation and law enforcement strategies to better protect neighborhoods.
Staff members with the Rochester Police Crime Prevention Bureau are offering classes in six areas this month that will include walking tours of the neighborhoods to take a closer look at their issues.
Classes are scheduled at Gage Elementary School on May 15, Harriet Bishop Elementary School on May 16, Mayo High School on May 17, Elton Hills Elementary School on May 22, Kellogg Middle School on May 23, and Northrop Education Center on May 24. After a short introduction at 6:30 p.m., there will be walking tours of the neighborhoods. The goal of crime prevention through environmental design is to reduce the opportunity for crime to occur.
