Crime & Safety

Truly effective crime prevention requires addressing causes of crime and reducing opportunities for it to occur. Crime prevention is everyone's business and community safety is everyone's responsibility. The Mountain View Police Department is committed to crime reduction and prevention. There are many things that Mountain View citizens and business owners can do to reduce the chances of becoming a victim. Comprehensive crime prevention that coordinates strategies and policies (addressing causes as well as occurrences of crime) are vital to long-term success.
