Dear Plano Citizen:

The Plano Police Department Crime Prevention Unit is hosting several classes which we hope you may be interested in attending.  The information in these classes is given with two goals in mind…#1, to reduce your chance of becoming a victim of crime and #2, to make Plano a safer city.  The classes are designed to be entertaining and educational.  You’ll have fun and learn at the same time.  They are as follows: 

   Property Protection How to make your residence more difficult to get in to for any unwanted intruder.  In this class you’ll learn how vulnerable you really are.  Whether you’re attempting to keep out burglars, former spouses/boyfriends or girlfriends, stalkers, etc., this class is a must.  There are many ways your current security can be violated.  Learn what to do to improve your odds. This class is set for Tuesday evening 04-18-17. 

Personal Safety You will learn how your natural intuition can keep you out of trouble and perhaps save your life.  You’ll learn to obey your instincts and know what to avoid in a crisis situation.  All of us have that ‘sixth sense’, pay attention to it.  This class is scheduled for Tuesday evening 04-25-17. 

Classes are being held at the Liberty Recreation Center located at 2601 Glencliff and are free of charge.  Each class begins at 7:00pm and lasts anywhere from one and a half to two hours depending on questions from the audience.  You are encouraged to invite friends, family or co-workers to these classes.  The Plano Parks and Recreation Department asks that you register through them prior to attending any of these classes.  They can be reached by phone at 972-769-4234 or at  if you wish to register online.   

These classes are fun, entertaining and educational.  Please join me in assisting the Plano Police Department in lowering the overall crime rate in Plano as well as reducing your chance of becoming a victim.  If you have any questions feel free to call me at 972-208-8045 during regular business hours. 

I hope to meet you in the near future,
