Millions of Americans are likely to be victim to a crime, and even more are likely to pay witness to some kind of crime. Making sure there are safe and effective ways to communicate and cooperate with local authorities can help to solve and reduce cases. Filing a crime report, collecting statements, and verifying information from witnesses can help ensure communities effectively engage with each other and officials to eliminate crime.
