The East Texas Crime Prevention Association will be hosting the 39th Texas Crime Prevention Association Annual training conference this coming Monday, January 13-15, 2014 starting at 8:00 a.m. at the Holiday Inn on S. Broadway in Tyler, Texas.

TCPA is composed of nine regions from across the State of Texas. Law Enforcement officers, civilian crime prevention practitioners, businesses promoting crime prevention and crime prevention technology will be in attendance.  Officers and civilians will be updated on current crime trends, new technologies in security, personal safety tips, stranger danger programs and much more.

The education of our members is the primary goal of our organization and updating changing technology is critical.

Media may contact Officer James McCraw at the conference if you would like a sound-bite.
