The Fort Devens Crime Prevention mission is to assist the Garrison Commander in making the Fort Devens community a safer and more secure environment for Soldiers, Family Members, workforce, retirees and visitors that access our Installation. The Crime Prevention program enhances the combined efforts of Fort Devens Law Enforcement, Physical Security, Safety and Force Protection by implementing sound crime prevention practices, executed at all levels. Crime prevention is one program that can have a major impact on installation crime rates at a relatively minor cost in both dollars and manpower. It takes less effort to discourage a criminal from perpetrating a crime or to teach a Soldier to avoid becoming a victim than it does to investigate a crime, identify the offender, prosecute him, and punish him. In addition, a proactive approach to law enforcement can help maintain the high quality of service life that can improve the retention of first-term Soldiers.
