Trim your shrubbery to aid visibility, add sufficient lighting to eliminate dark spots, control access to reduce or eliminate trespassers, and maintain your property to show a pride of ownership were among the environmental design crime prevention tips recently offered to the Francis Scott Key Lions Club by Edward Lulie and Robert Marker. Lulie (right in “CPTED program” photograph), Community Prosecutor in the Frederick County State’s Attorney’s Office under a Safe Streets grant by the Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention, and Marker (shown left in photograph), a retired Frederick Police detective who is the Gang Analyst with the Safe Streets Program and current president of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Gang Investigators’ Network (MARGIN), explained CPTED principles and showed examples of good and bad (in terms of crime prevention) environmental design and how good design can help improve a community and reduce crime.


The FSK Lions meet the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the Barbara Fritchie Candystick Restaurant, 1513 West Patrick Street, Frederick. Dinner is $16.50 a person.
