Investing in Kids Will Help Prevent Crime

This month, Scott County Sheriff Luke Hennen became a member of Fight Crime: Invest in Kids, an anti-crime organization of over 5,000 police chiefs, sheriffs, prosecutors nationwide.  For 25 years, Fight Crime: Invest in Kids members have spoken out in support of strategies proven to promote public safety by ensuring the opportunity to grow up to lead productive lives.

Founded in 1996, Fight Crime: Invest in Kids promotes smart, bipartisan state and federal solutions to reduce crime, such as evidence-based voluntary parent coaching programs for new parents that prevent child abuse and neglect; high-quality early childhood education that increases educational success and graduation rates; stronger K-12 education goals and after-school programs that give kids a clear path toward productive futures and away from crime; and proven coaching programs that strengthen families and get troubled kids back on track.

“As someone who has spent their entire career in law enforcement, I know we cannot simply arrest our way out of societal problems,” said Sheriff Luke Hennen.  “The best way to reduce crime is by preventing it from happening in the first place by supporting evidence-based policies and programs that strengthen families and build stronger, safer communities.”
