To receive certification, the business had to meet the standards set by The International Crime Free Organization. It entailed: attending a two hour training program which gave the business the tools and techniques to set up a crime free business; development of written policies and procedures for the business to follow;  developed ongoing training for employees, and successfully passing a crime free business inspection. CPD’s crime prevention officers worked and assisted the business owner every step of the way and helped him set up what could be considered a model program.

The Police Department has a series of Crime Free programs available which covers everything from businesses to personal residences.  Crime cannot always be prevented, but, with citizens’ help techniques/tools/solutions can be put in place that can make it harder for the criminal element to conduct “their business.”  Anyone interested in participating in one of the Crime Free Programs, contact one of Clarksville Police Department’s Crime Prevention Officers at 931-648-0656.
