In order for a crime to occur, three conditions must be present:

Motive: A person must have a need or desire to commit a crime
Means: A person must have a way or method to commit the crime
Opportunity: A set of circumstances must be present in order for the crime to occur

If you can eliminate the criminal’s means or opportunity, you can reduce your chances of being victimized. The information on these web pages will raise your awareness of certain crimes, and provide you with helpful information so you can take action to protect yourself.
