East Metro Crime Prevention Coalition Forms
We have joined efforts to unify our educational resources, prevention strategies, and our law enforcement response to the problems that plague our communities and to enter in to a dialogue and partnership with the greater community on these issues.
The EMCPC will pool and share information throughout the year as the group gathers resources and best practices to solve some of the most pressing crimes in our communities. Part of this effort includes a series of educational forums which will generate an organic toolkit that communities can use.
It is our hope that a unified and integrated approach will make a real dent
not only in the crime rates in these communities but also in the hopelessness
that crime breeds.
