National Crime Prevention Specialist Certification

Crime prevention practitioners, have waited too long for national recognition of their expertise. That’s why the National Crime Prevention Association (NCPA) and National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC), in partnership with the Bureau of Justice Assistance of the U.S. Department of Justice, have developed a certification program to do just that.

Through this national certification program, crime prevention practitioners will finally be able to obtain recognition for the expertise that they have developed through years of education, training, experience, and countless hours devoted to their communities. We know that proven crime prevention techniques and practices work to keep communities safer. Now it’s time to recognize the field of crime prevention, and its expert practitioners, as crime prevention specialists. This certification will do that by setting minimum standards for basic and advanced expertise and recognizing those who have done the work to meet them.
