Celebrate National Crime Prevention Month with WPD

Post Date:09/29/2017 1:29 PM

Crime Prevention Month FlyerThe Wilmington Police Department will host several events throughout October in celebration of National Crime Prevention Month. 

The events, which include tours of the police station and a women’s self-defense class, are geared toward building community relations and equipping residents with the knowledge to help reduce crime. We will also offer a daily crime prevention tip on social media throughout the month. 

The City of Wilmington experienced a decline in overall crime totals in 2016 and is on track to do the same in 2017. Join us as we celebrate our efforts, made possible through community support and partnerships with other law enforcement agencies, to fight crime daily.
