Crime Prevention

Blue Springs Officer
Desire + Ability + Opportunity = Crime
Crime is like a table with 3 legs - it takes all 3 legs for a table to stand, but if you take away one of the legs, the table isn’t supported.

Desire, ability, and opportunity - all 3 of these conditions must exist before a crime can be committed. The Blue Springs Police Department knows that while we cannot stop someone from having a desire to commit crime, we can certainly remove their ability and opportunity.

Crime Prevention is a community effort. With your help, the Blue Springs Police Department can empower neighborhoods and citizens to do their part to recognize and help prevent crime.
