In 1984, the National Crime Prevention Council designated October Crime Prevention Month- the official month for recognizing and celebrating the practice of crime prevention. NCPC annually releases a Crime Prevention Month Kit, which includes a calendar and crime prevention handouts.

It would also behoove you to know how to prepare for the big spooky day from a safety perspective.
