Just in: Community Crime Control Workshop at Xavier

Xavier University’s Community Building Institute, a partnership between Xavier University and the United Way of Greater Cincinnati, will offer a Community Driven Crime Control (CDCC) Workshop on Thursday May 29, 2008 from 6-9 pm in Kelley Auditorium in Alter Hall on the Xavier campus. It will be repeated on Saturday May 31, 2008 from 9am-noon. Admission is free and the workshop is open to the public.

This workshop is a follow up to the Neighborhood Summit presentation by Bond Hill and North Avondale on the crime-prevention initiative implemented in their neighborhoods. It will show how neighborhoods can:

  • find new ways to solve problems
  • be empowered to control their own destinies
  • learn skills to address problems such as crime and disorder
  • use data to inform decisions about crime solutions
  • discover resources, find assets and build capacities

The workshop will be moderated by Dr. Kam C. Wong, chair of Xavier University’s Criminal Justice Department. It is sponsored by Xavier University, the Community Building Institute, Invest in Neighborhoods Inc., Bond Hill Community Council, and North Avondale Neighborhood Association.
