Who We Are

In 1972, thirty officers from Northern California law enforcement agencies met in Concord, California. During the meeting the advantages of sharing strategies and concepts within the crime prevention field were discussed. This initial meeting resulted in the creation of the Northern California Crime Prevention Officers Association. Also during 1972, the first national crime prevention institute was established at the University of Louisville.
