About Us

The Crime Prevention Task Force grew out of a recommendation of the Lancaster County Crime Summit sponsored by the Lancaster County Commissioners in 2008. These partnered agencies in the Task Force are dedicated to decreasing crime in Lancaster County. It is clear that the best way to do away with crime is by reaching out to potential offenders before they do offend and to provide services that will ensure that they do not become a statistic. One of the fundamental purposes behind the task force is to lessen crime in Lancaster County by reaching children before they begin to make the poor choices that can lead to criminal behavior.
