Local cops are teaching a crime prevention classes and they're inviting the public.

The Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Detective's Bureau Burlgary Team is teaching crime prevention, education and awareness classes Nov. 19 and 20 at Santa Clarita City Hall, 23920 Valencia Boulevard.

SCV deputies and the FBI's Los Angeles office will teach local bank employees how to thwart banking crimes from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Nov. 19. The class includes crime prevention through environmental design, new technology, remaining safe during a robbery incident, and how to handle a false robbery alarm.

Another key component will be the new "Security Access Monitoring" program where the Santa Clarita Sheriff's Emergency Dispatch Center can remotely monitor video surveillance systems to assist with law enforcement response to local businesses during calls for service.

The second class is from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Nov. 20 for retail store owners, managers and loss prevention employees are invited to attend to learn how to combat credit card and check fraud activity.

The session will also offer training to prevent organized retail crime, which will be presented by national experts in organized retail crime investigations. Gangs of thieves travel throughout Los Angeles County stealing millions of dollars in merchandise from stores. Last year, with the assistance of the Sheriff's Department, Organized Retail Crime Investigators from the Gap Stores nabbed a team of three in a theft spree at a local shopping center.
