Project Safe Neighborhood launches Tippecanoe County Rental Property Owners and Managers Training Program

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Lafayette Online) — Pat Harrington, Tippecanoe County Prosecutor, and Kathryn Redd, PSN Gang Initiative Coordinator will host speakers and special guests from federal, and local law enforcement agencies, state and local government, and national and local agencies as they formally announce the Tippecanoe County Rental Property Owners and Managers Training Program to the public at Thomas Duncan Hall this week.

Project Safe Neighborhood initiatives are built upon forming strong partnerships in the community between law enforcement agencies, governmental entities, community organizations, neighborhood associations, and citizens. It is the power that the coalition has when acting together that is most disruptive to crime and criminal activity.

Project Safe Neighborhood Initiatives have five core components that are critical to success: Partnerships, Strategic Planning, Training, Outreach, and Accountability.

The announcement will be Wednesday, May 28, 2008 at 5:00pm, Thomas Duncan Hall, 610 Ferry Street, Lafayette (765) 742-4788.
