■ What is the “Brighter Society Campaign”?
 The “Brighter Society Campaign” — the power of the community that prevents crime and juvenile delinquency and helps offenders rehabilitation — is a national Campaign held for the 69th time in 2019 for all citizens to deepen their understanding of the importance of the prevention of crime and delinquency, and rehabilitation of offenders, and to combine their efforts from their respective positions to contribute to the society.

■ Community power prevents crimes and delinquencies
 Reports of crimes can be seen on the television and in newspapers almost every day. Everyone wants to live a safe and secure life. In order to eliminate crime and delinquency, what should we do? It is necessary to strengthen crackdowns and to punish those who have committed crimes. However, it is also very important to accept offenders back into communities if they have decided to change, and to create homes and communities that do not produce people who commit crime or delinquency.
 We must create homes and communities that support recovery. For that purpose, not only some but all people must be involved in their own respective communities. The “Brighter Society Campaign” aims to create opportunities for each and every person to think and participate in order to create communities free from crime and delinquency.

■ Why don’t you start with what you can do?
 In addition to publicity activities on the street, and through posters, newspapers and television, the “Brighter Society Campaign” holds various events that anyone can participate in. Why don’t you participate in an event or look at this website and think about what is necessary now and what you can do in order to create a safe and secure life free from crime and delinquency?
