Is your business participating in Halloween promotions and events? If so, tie in the theme of crime prevention and community safety through the use of brochures, small giveaways such as coloring books for kids, or by linking to information on your website. The NCPC website contains numerous suggestions for events and makes available merchandise to promote crime prevention. For example, you can download or purchase printed copies of crime prevention kits or use the electronic media kit to alert the media to your events and activities.
Encourage your chamber of commerce and other associations and businesses to participate in the crime prevention theme for October as well. Keeping businesses and the customers and clients who support them safe fosters goodwill and is a win-win for everyone concerned.
