Voice of the Citizen - Seeking Solutions to Violence

12-VOC-violence-header 

Mayor Thomas S. Richards and Police Chief James M. Sheppard conducted a series of “Voice of the Citizen” – Seeking Solutions to Violence community forums from December 2012 through February 2013 in which citizens played an active role in helping to develop a comprehensive strategy to reduce violence. Citizens discussed the issue of violence under four broad categories: Open-air drug sales and gate houses; Gangs, guns and the culture of violence; Bullying and truancy; and House parties. Crime prevention officers were available for breakout sessions for each of these topics and City staff acted as facilitators. The final report outlines steps the City will take as a result of citizen input received during the forums.
