The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office is offering a free, three-day crime prevention course for community leaders, business groups and personnel from other civic organizations who would like to learn about crime prevention techniques, new crime trends and more.
The Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design course will run from March 18 to March 20 at Safety Town, 15325 Alric Pottberg Road, in Spring Hill. It is located a half-mile west of the Suncoast Parkway and State Road 52.
The course is designed to reduce the fear and frequency of crime, and improve the quality of life. It takes into account various neighborhood elements like design code, landscaping, lighting, traffic calming, territoriality, public amenities, and others.
With the increase in new home and business construction in the county, there also is the possibility of an increase in theft and burglaries related to these industries.
Space is limited, and registration is required. For more information, email Lt. Troy Fergueson at .
