Abt has some special visitors today. The Illinois Crime Prevention Association held a training and conference at Abt. Mike Lopez, head of Abt’s security department, and fellow member of ICPA, spoke to the group, took them on a tour of the location, and coordinated their event today.
The ICPA is comprised of police officers and peacekeepers from communities throughout the state of Illinois. The purpose of the ICPA is to crime control and reduction, training, and continuing education of officers and groups with the same goal.
According to the ICPA, “We focus our attention on local, regional, and state issues relating to crime prevention and in turn inform our elected officials, legislative bodies and criminal justice personnel of current crime prevention trends and techniques necessary for reducing crime.”
