INTERNATIONAL: USA "Safer Communities"

Aiken County in South Carolina is holding meetings to inform residents about a crime-reduction initiative being considered, and to hear from residents of a North Carolina city in which the initiative has been implemented. Over the last months, Public Safety has been reviewing and studying the initiative, known as “Safer Communities,” which is based on academic research as well as statistical information gathered by local law enforcement officials.

Regardless of community size, the common result of the research is that a small percentage of individuals are responsible for the bulk of crimes.

The initiative involves traditional law enforcement and community members working together to reduce crime.

Offenders are identified based on their present and past criminal activities and must attend a meeting with law enforcement officials and community members to hear the effects of the crimes they’re committing.

The offenders are also given, in writing, the penalties they face if they commit another crime.

From there, offenders are offered opportunities through area service providers and nonprofit organizations to help them pursue a “different, more productive path,” according to the statement.
