The Wake County Sheriff’s Office Crime Prevention Unit is a proactive program that provides the public with information to help identify and minimize the risks of becoming a crime victim. These programs teach citizens how to enhance security and safety for themselves and their neighborhoods.


The Crime Prevention Unit also offers classes that teach citizens how to report a crime and what information is important to gather before calling law enforcement. They also help organize community watch programs where communities work as a team to observe activity in their neighborhood.


The Crime Prevention Unit has programs for children and adults. If you are interested in additional information on our Crime Prevention Unit, or wish to schedule a program, please call 919-890-7877 or send an email to The Crime Prevention Officer
