All of the participating law enforcement agencies have web pages linked to the Sacramento Citizen's Crime Alert web page, under our section labeled "External Links". Most of them have various areas within their respective web page that discuss Crime Awareness.
As an example the Sacramento Police Department's web page www.sacpd.org has areas titled "Crime Prevention", "Victim's of Crime Resource Center", "Crime Mapping", "Annual Statistics" as well as other areas to locate information concerning Crime Awareness. The Sacramento Sheriff's Department has a similar section contained within their respective web page, http://www.sacsheriff.com/ .
The Sacramento Citizen's Crime Alert Board strongly recommends you go to the website of the law enforcement agency that has jurisdiction for the area you are concerned about.
