The job of any police department is to keep the peace and safeguard the public against crime.  The Southern Shores Police Department is committed to that duty and the best way to achieve peace and safety is through crime prevention.  It is much easier to prevent crime than to solve a crime once it has been committed but we can't do it alone.  Crime prevention comes when law enforcement and the community come together and work together to achieve the common goal.  The community best serves this function through education and practice.

Whether in your home, at work or on vacation, there are things that we can all do to make ourselves and our loved ones safer.  If you are interested in knowing what some of those things are, please click on one of the following links:
