Community education efforts are directed at preventing crime and unsafe activities before they start. A community education officer works with residents and businesses while two school resource officers maintain a presence at every school in unincorporated Washington Township.

Sheriff's deputies help prevent and address crime through high levels of community involvement and teamwork. In neighborhoods and parks, the most visible sign is police officers on bicycles. Neighborhood Watch and Business Watch programs are other effective tools.
