According to the FBI, a violent crime happens every 19 seconds in the United States. In an effort to deter criminal activity and create awareness on the Reynolds campuses, this week, Stephanie Morton presented a “Refuse to be a Victim” workshop as part of JSRCC’s Real Life Series of discussions. She covered basic crime prevention tips that included home security, physical security, automobile safety and workplace safety. The “Refuse to be a Victim” presentation is certified through the National Rifle Association and is backed by the Virginia Crime Prevention Association. Morton, who provides administrative support to the JSRCC Department of Police and Securities, is a Crime Prevention Specialist. Her presentation also specifically covered CPTED principles. CPTED (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design) is an approach to deterring criminal activity through environmental design strategies.
