Fairmount Village Selected for Safety Initiative

The Price Family Charitable Fund recently awarded the Consensus Organizing Center at San Diego State University a grant to fund a two year safety initiative to reduce crime in the Fairmount Village neighborhood of City Heights.

The City Heights neighborhood of Fairmount Village has been selected by Price Charities and the to participate in a two year community safety initiative to reduce crime.

The initiative’s program director is in the process of recruiting home and business owners to enroll and complete a six month workshop to learn about community consensus building and problem oriented policing. The workshops will also include law enforcement, city leaders, and other neighborhood stakeholders.

After the workshop the volunteers will implement sustainable long term objectives and measures that will carry on long after the two year initiative is completed. The goal is to reduce crime and increase resident’s perception of safety, encouraging them to enjoy time outside their homes without fear of victimization.
