Trade-Tech’s Sheriff’s Department has initiated an aggressive approach to crime prevention and is pleased with the results of this effort. Law enforcement departments do not, however, function effectively without the help, cooperation and assistance of the community it serves. Accordingly, the Sheriff’s Department develops special programs designed to eliminate or minimize criminal opportunities and to encourage all members of the campus community to be aware of crime prevention practices. Officers routinely make presentations on personal, vehicular and property protection at new student orientations and, upon request, at other college activities and events. Flyers and other written materials are also distributed.
