The Crime Prevention Office is the cornerstone of the San Gabriel Police Department’s effort to enhance the quality of life in the community in partnership with community members.
Crime Prevention is citizen awareness and participation.It is a willingness to look out for each other, to report any suspicious activities immediately to the San Gabriel Police Department, and to stay involved in the safety and security of your community.
The ultimate goal of crime prevention is to reduce the risk of being a victim. In order to accomplish this effectively, it is important to remove opportunities for a criminal to take advantage of you or your property. You are attempting to prevent becoming a victim by presenting an unattractive target to the criminal. Neighborhood Watch and the Business Alert Network (B.A.N.) are programs that help to achieve this goal.
