Since 1984, the month of October has been designated National Crime Prevention Month. Since then, the National Crime Prevention Council has been on a mission to educate communities on ways to prevent crime and stay safe. From local law enforcement agencies to neighborhood watch groups, many organizations can spread safety messages with promotional products. With logoed giveaways, these groups can remind community members to stay alert, avoid leaving valuables in plain sight and to lock their car doors.

In this issue Promotional Consultant Today, we’re sharing a few ideas for National Crime Prevention Month.
