ATLANTA – October 2015 – U.S. Security Associates (USA) is joining the National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) in promoting crime prevention and safety this October. The NCPC has designated October as Crime Prevention Month, a time for spotlighting successful crime prevention practices and cultivating awareness of important issues. As a national security company, U.S. Security Associates supports NCPC’s goals.
“We are focused on security and safety issues impacting our clients 365 days a year,” says Alton Harvey, senior vice president of USA's national accounts division, “but during Crime Prevention Month, we focus on sharing crime prevention information and insights with a broader audience. We gladly support the National Crime Prevention Council’s campaigns to ‘Take a Bite Out of Crime.’”
NCPC is focusing on a specific theme for each week in October. During Week 1, the focus is identity theft and how to protect your identity from being high-jacked by criminals. The topic for Week 2 is safe firearm storage and keeping firearms away from children, thieves, and others who may harm themselves or others. Week 3 explores principles for living safer and being smarter and is targeted to young adults, ages 18-24, who are getting their first taste of independence. The emphasis in Week 4 is on gangs and keeping kids out of them, protecting neighborhoods from gang infiltration, and working with neighbors and law enforcement to solve community gang problems.
