"I would like to thank everyone who makes the FRPA website possible.
This website offers not only information on crimes happening locally, but across the country. We learn about the different ways crimes are committed and it determines how our company conducts business....from our convenience stores to our oil and propane business. We look at how we accept checks and credit cards, making sure our employees receive the proper training for accepting these items and they help us be more dilligent about watching for potential problems at ATM machines and gas pumps.
When we think about all the ways fraud can happen, we know we must rely on all the resources available to us. The website is easy to use, extremely informative and has proven to be a valuable resource for our company. We are looking forward to utilizing the new website and continuing to learn and be informed.
Thanks to all of you at FRPA!"
