Due to the impact the COVID-19 crisis has had on our community nonprofits, we are currently considering requests for operational support in addition to specific program needs.
The Crime Prevention Foundation
increases public awareness of and provides financial assistance to crime prevention programs in Brown County. Financial support is given to existing programs and for the implementation of new crime prevention programs that break the crime triangle.
For a crime to occur, these three elements are necessary:
- DESIRE to commit the crime
- ABILITY to commit the crime
- OPPORTUNITY to commit the crime
Successful crime prevention programs directly impact one of these three elements.
