When a crime happens, the Huntington Park Police Department will be there. But wouldn’t it be better if we could prevent the crimes from happening? We can…by working together? Taking personal responsibility is the key to crime prevention.

By taking personal responsibility, you can reduce the likelihood that a criminal will target you or your property. Active communities are the best partners the police have when it comes to fighting crime. Showing that small crimes and nuisance activities will not be tolerated in your neighborhood sends clear signals to criminals to stay away. That means, reporting graffiti, being active in block watch and reporting suspicious activity.
