Crime Prevention & Education

By educating the community on crime prevention techniques and by getting citizens involved in crime prevention activities such as Neighborhood Watch, we can reduce the number of crimes in Falmouth and increase the quality of life for its citizens.

Sgt. Benjamin Guthrie is the coordinator for our Community Liaison Officers (Crime Watch). Please feel free to contact Sgt. Guthrie to ask about a Community Liaison Officer for your neighborhood.
