Extra security for Shawnee neighborhood homeowners

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB Fox 41) -- It's an early Christmas for two longtime Shawnee neighborhood homeowners.

Local businesses donated new deadbolt locks, security systems, and other crime prevention devices to homeowners who needed a little extra help when it comes to securing their home.

As Lt. Lavita Chavous of LMPD explained, "Our burglaries are problematic for us, but we continue to try to do things to prevent them, and we try to get the information out to the neighborhood on what they can do to prevent themselves from being victims of burglary."

The National Crime Prevention Institute, based on the University of Louisville campus, and the Louisville Metro Police Department teamed up to lead the effort.  They hope safety projects like this will help prevent crimes in the future.
