HPD Lieutenant Marvin Hyvl says, “We want to encourage local residents – homeowners, business owners and anyone else who is interested – to attend this crime prevention workshop.” He said, “During the presentation, we will offer several presentations by law enforcement officers with expertise in specific topics including scams, forgeries, burglaries, thefts and methods of crime prevention.
He said they “want people to know there are certain precautions they can take to become less targeted, and that there are certain things they can do to help law enforcement agencies fight these crimes.”
