Crime Prevention Unit

The Glassboro Police Crime Prevention Unit is comprised of officers that specialize and take part in various community programs, events and educational presentations. You’ll find these officers handing out information and answering questions at Unity Day, our annual Shred Event in April or collecting unused or unwanted medications during Operation Take Back.

Officers in the Unit are available to speak at events or meetings held by local organizations, schools, Boy and Girl Scout troops and more. Whether it’s speaking about identify theft, online safety or bicycle safety, we can tailor an educational program to suit your needs. Additionally, we can conduct a “Home Security Survey” to help you identify ways to make your home less vulnerable to break-ins or schedule a tour of the police department for you youth group or club. All of this is free of charge and available at your convenience.

A new initiative administered by the Crime Prevention Unit is the “Crime Free Mulit-Housing” program. This is a voluntary program in which owners of rental properties become certified by our Department as a “Crime Free” property by adhering to various recommendations. These include thorough background checks of prospective tenants, adequate lighting on the property and building strong relationships within the neighborhood. If you are a landlord or a tenant looking to provide or live in a “Crime Free” residence, please click on the link below for more information.

To schedule a presentation or to request more information about what we can do for you or your organization, please contact Inv. Julie Howery at 856-881-1501, ext 88167 or at jhowery@glassboropd.org.
