                            JOINT RESOLUTION

        To designate October 1994 as ``Crime Prevention Month''.

Whereas crime prevention improves the quality of life in every community;
Whereas crime prevention is a cost-effective answer to the problems caused by 
        crime, drug abuse, and fear of crime;
Whereas crime prevention is central to a sound criminal justice system at 
        National, State, and local levels;
Whereas millions of citizens have demonstrated that by working together, they 
        can reduce crime, drug abuse, and fear of crime;
Whereas all people of the United States, from preschoolers to senior citizens, 
        can help themselves, their families, and their neighborhoods prevent 
        crime and build safer more caring communities;
Whereas all kinds of community organizations (including individuals, law 
        enforcement, other State and local agencies, civic and community groups, 
        religious institutions, schools, and businesses) have vital roles to 
        play in reducing crime and building safer, more vibrant communities;
Whereas it is important to honor annually those throughout society who work to 
        prevent crime and to build and sustain communities; and
Whereas the National Citizens' Crime Prevention Campaign (featuring McGruff the 
        Crime Dog and sponsored by the Department of Justice, the Crime 
        Prevention Coalition, and the National Crime Prevention Council) 
        encourages effective partnerships to reduce crime and to improve life 
        throughout the Nation: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United 
States of America in Congress assembled, That the month of October 1994 
is designated as ``Crime Prevention Month'' and the President is 
authorized and requested to issue a proclamation calling on the people 
of the United States to observe this month with appropriate ceremonies 
and activities.

            Passed the House of Representatives July 25, 1994.
