Escambia County Sheriff's office will host a crime prevention conference

PENSACOLA, Fla.- The Escambia County Sheriff's Office will host "Bridging the Gap," a crime prevention conference on August 13 and 14. This two day conference, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in downtown Pensacola, is an effort to encourage communication and action within the community by showcasing innovative crime prevention ideas and successful strategies.

A major component of the program will be directed toward alternatives to violence among our young people. The greatest weapon we have in fighting crime is a community that will no longer accept it.

Attendance is free, but seating will be limited. Registration forms are available at the Sheriff's Office Administration Building, 1700 West Leonard Street. In order to provide this conference free of charge to the citizens of Escambia County, the Sheriff's Office will be soliciting sponsors for the event.
