Aware.Prepare.Prevent Campaign

To do its job effectively, the FBI works with both government and private sector partners every day and at every level. In some cases, these partnerships directly support our investigations and operations. In other cases, they enable mutually beneficial information sharing that help us to better understand emerging threats and foster crime prevention initiatives.

In 2012, the Norfolk FBI and its partners launched a campaign called Aware.Prepare.Prevent (APP) to educate the community on a variety of topics and local threats. All APP seminars are free; however, registration is highly recommended. For more information about this campaign or to register for a seminar, please call (757) 609-2595 or e-mail .
