Agenda Item Summary:
The RCPD is applying for the Innovations in Community-Based Crime Reduction Grant. If awarded, this grant would be $1 million over 4 years, with no City match required. We would use the funds to stand up a new 4-person unit to address violent crime as well as drug-related activity by implementing strategies that incorporate community collaboration and engagement to address issues that affect quality of life and safety. This is a sustaining and expansion opportunity for our Quality of Life Unit work.
