APD Foothills Area Command
Crime Prevention 2013 Wrap-Up

In closing out 2013 I want to thank you, our Foothills Area Command community, for the privilege of providing APD Crime Prevention services to you.

My goal has been to deliver a consistently high level of service, to help with your challenges and to provide you with common-sense tools that put you in the ‘driver’s seat’ to reduce your odds of being a victim. I’ve listed the APD Crime Prevention services provided in 2013 hoping to inspire you to continue practicing crime prevention or give you an indication of what’s available to you through my office.

I hope I’ve provided you with ways to achieve peace of mind in your homes and a sense of control when it comes to being safer.

As Always, Be Safe! Happy Holidays,
