Crime Prevention

Criminal behavior can endanger our personal safety, damage public and private property, and lower your quality of life. The Irvine Police Department’s Crime Prevention Unit takes a proactive approach by discussing information about crime in the community and by providing safety tips on how to prevent or reduce crime.

Our Crime Prevention Unit asks you to work in partnership with us to reduce crime. The safety of our community is a shared responsibility and these partnerships create opportunities to improve safety for everyone. Crime prevention is everybody’s business, but our Crime Prevention Unit offers a variety of services to help you reduce crime.
