                            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 
        Federal, State, and local levels;
Whereas millions of United States 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 it is important to honor annually those individuals 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 October 1994 is 
designated ``Crime Prevention Month'', and the President is authorized 
and requested to issue a proclamation calling upon the people of the 
United States to observe the month with appropriate ceremonies and 
activities.

            Passed the Senate August 12 (legislative day, August 11), 
      1994.
