What is the Crime Prevention Foundation of Brown County?
In Brown County alone, more than 50 million additional dollars have been spent over the past decade to increase law enforcement. Although this does place more criminals behind bars, it has been proven that crime prevention measures can significantly reduce crime and be up to 10 times more cost-effective than traditional control measures. In response, the Crime Prevention Foundation of Brown County was formed to support programs which successfully target a variety of at-risk populations such as children and teens.
