The Fort Knox Crime Prevention's mission is to assist the Installation Commander and Director of Emergency Services in making the Fort Knox community a safer and more secure environment for Soldiers, Family Members, workforce, retirees and visitors that access our Installation. The Crime Prevention program will enhance the combined efforts of Fort Knox Law Enforcement, Physical Security, Prevention, 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.

Neighborhood Watch

A good neighbor is one of the most effective crime prevention tools ever invented. Visit Neighborhood Watch Here.

Neighborhood Watch teaches you the steps that you can take to help protect your home. It organizes a neighborhood group which can make crime prevention part of every persons daily routine, just by watching out for each other. Your job is to report suspicious activity to police. It is their job to handle the crooks!

The Fort Knox Crime Prevention Office and Knox Hills are working together to bring the Neighborhood Watch Program back to Fort Knox. Please check back at a later date for more information.
