About Us

Vision: The Lancaster County Crime Prevention Task Force will be a leader in efforts to decrease crime in Lancaster County.

Mission: CPTF will work toward prevention in all areas of crime, with a special focus on reaching children before they enter the Criminal Justice System. This will be accomplished by:

1. Monitoring the risk factors for criminal behavior as provided by the Pennsylvania Youth Survey and other credible data sources.  

2. Dissemination of information regarding risks for criminal behavior and effective prevention practices through monthly newsletters, our website, an annual Crime Prevention Summit and other opportunities as they arise.

3. Promotion of collaboration among member agencies to address Lancaster County criminal justice issues.
