Overview

In order for crime to occur, three elements must be present:

 
  • Desire

  • Ability

  • Opportunity

Crime Prevention Logo

These elements can be depicted as a triangle, a "crime triangle."  By removing the opportunity for a criminal to commit a crime we break the crime triangle and make it much more difficult for a criminal to operate in our community.  The main objective of crime prevention is to reduce the opportunity for crime.
