Val Stratford has served as president of Stratford Insurance Group, Inc., in Layton, Utah, for more than 12 years. Val Stratford additionally oversees activities with the Layton Community Action Council (LCAC) as executive director.
The LCAC is a philanthropic organization comprised of adult and youth volunteers from the Layton area. The LCAC maintains a number of valuable community services and programs, including the Layton Neighborhood Watch.
Resulting from a partnership with the Layton Citizen Corps Council, the Neighborhood Watch program has proven to be an effective and affordable method for preventing crime and creating safe residential environments throughout the community.
