Since its inception in 1995, dozens of congregations have undertaken an effort to create "safe zones" in numerous neighborhoods. Congregation members go door to door to interview residents about crime "hot spots" in their neighborhood in an effort to eliminate drugs, gangs, abandoned buildings and prostitution. Congregations have conducted dozens of community meetings to hold law enforcement accountable to following up on complaints. Through this process over 100 drug houses have been raided and millions in cash, weapons and drugs have been confiscated.
Congregations are encouraged to learn about Safe Zones.
