Revisit – Paula’s Plan – SAFETY

Paula Tobias by Paula Tobias

SAFETY

Encourage community members to take shared responsibility for maintaining a safe environment.

A.
Develop a Strategic Crime Council working with the police, the city and county prosecutor’s offices, to bring together community stakeholders to oversee the program and leverage federal, state, private and philanthropic funds and other resources to
(1) create neighborhood crime prevention councils and neighborhood alert groups,
(2) provide expanded mental health treatment for violence related trauma,
(3) provide new substance abuse prevention and treatment options to reduce behaviors that contribute to criminal activity,
(4) provide community-based conflict resolution programming,
(5) work with the city’s Partnership for Youth to advance youth crime prevention and enrichment programming.

B.
Disseminate crime data on a daily basis. Explore using a geographical information system; the police department makes crime statistics available to all its personnel and to the public. Internet crime maps show trends and citizen alerts and patrol action can be taken immediately. Look into a Citizen Observer Electronic Notification System that can provide police generated crime alerts to residents in neighborhoods.
C.
Support fire and police department community outreach programs to schools and neighborhoods to create disaster prevention and response awareness.

D.
Support the Lorain Police Department for continued police deployment to targeted crime areas of the city. Reinforce community policing strategies.

E.
Assess the impact of an antiquated water system on fire services and develop strategies and funding mechanisms to address infrastructure issues.
