SUMMARY:

 

One of the primary obstacles to urban revitalization is the perception of a lack of safety. This perception is typically related to criminal activity, may be real or perceived, and may involve both personal safety as well as the safety of property. In some cases, unless the safety issues are addressed first, other elements of the redevelopment plan are difficult to accomplish. Community policing innovations are one approach that can be initiated to target criminal activity within a community redevelopment area. The Community Redevelopment Act describes “community policing innovations” as a policing technique or strategy designed to reduce crime by reducing opportunities for the perceived risks of engaging in criminal activity through the visible presence of police in the community.

 

Revitalization has drawn significant numbers of people and activities to areas long underutilized. However, areas of the Urban Core Community Redevelopment Area still experience safety concerns of varying degrees. To address these concerns, the CRA and City of Pensacola annually enter into an Interlocal Agreement to provide community policing activities within the entirety of the Urban Core Community Redevelopment Area from 17th Avenue to A Street.
