WR presented at the 45th Annual Washington State Crime Prevention Association conference this past week and was the primary sponsor for the event held in Olympia.
WR Senior Vice President of Policy and Government Affairs Mark Johnson spoke about business crime prevention, best practices, trends, resources for small and mid-sized businesses, and legislative solutions.
Attendees at the well-attended event were honored to have Seattle City Attorney Ann Davison as the keynote speaker. Davison spoke about working with criminal justice community members to reduce crime, enforce our laws, and increase safety in our state.
Other presenters included Art Hushen, President of the National Institute of Crime Prevention and founder of the Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) movement. He discussed how businesses can protect themselves by considering environmental design, including natural surveillance, access control, territorial reinforcement, and maintenance.
Several national partners presented, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, about risks, vulnerabilities, and mitigation measures across our country and locally.
WR greatly values our partnership with WSCPA and looks forward to next year’s conference in Wenatchee. For more information, please visit the WSCPA website. WSCPA is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization focused on partnerships, prevention, and education.
