Community members can educate the public about crime and create a safe environment. MSU has decided to take up this project every year to increase crime awareness. Not only that, participation by the community in crime prevention is a great way for citizens to build trust and strengthen the relationship between police and community. Their contributions can be extremely beneficial to society, regardless of whether they are focused on education, health, or mentoring youth. These initiatives can make communities more livable and reduce the potential for criminal behavior. Another effective way to engage community members in crime prevention is to set up community patrols.
