Crime Prevention and Awareness
October is Crime Prevention and Awareness Month, and we’re talking about it three ways; safety for families and singles, safety for seniors, and online safety. No need to be scared…just be prepared.
We are honored to have Salt Lake District Attorney Sim Gill as our UNPHC Edx speaker. Join us the third Thursday, Oct 17th, and Saturday, Oct 19th for our module on safe communities, and the role of the DA. It will be available on our UNPHC YouTube channel for those unable to attend Thursday/Saturday.
If you have been the victim of a crime, do not hesitate to reach out to our property managers, your local police department, and allow them and us to help. If you have been the victim of a violent crime, contact https://justice.utah.gov/Crime/, they can connect you with counseling, reparations, and overall assistance.
