Violent crime has increased in our city , parish and state. In an effort to reduce the occurance of violent crimes we will need to develop programs such as the "Adopt a Block' program. This program would allow various community organizations and churches to adopt a block in high crime areas. The organization would work with every home in the block to identify the socio-economic and educational issues that each home faces. In turn, they will work together to help resolve issues so those families can live a more productive life.
We have to work together to address crime in our community. We, the citizens, have to work with law enforcement, community organizations and the spiritual community to eliminate and solve as much crime as we can.
