City to Hold Neighborhood Safety Workshop Series

Posted: 03/19/2019
The City of Knoxville’s Office of Neighborhoods (OON) and Police Advisory and Review Committee (PARC) are collaborating with the Knoxville Police Department to host a series of workshops designed to inform residents about neighborhood-specific safety practices and how they can partner with City departments to make neighborhoods safer. 

“Neighborhoods have unique qualities, and the same goes for the safety issues they experience,” said Office of Neighborhoods Coordinator Debbie Sharp. “We want to break through misinformation and stigmas to share facts and best practices that help neighbors feel safer and more prepared for any situations that may arise in their neighborhoods.”

Workshop presenters will share crime statistics, updates on recent safety-related activities and ways residents can help prevent crime in their neighborhoods. Each workshop will provide an opportunity for attendees to report safety concerns about their specific areas.

The first workshop will address North Knoxville residents. Residents of other areas of the city are invited to attend meetings on any of these dates: 

Mar. 28, 2019:  
Church of the Good Shepherd, 5409 Jacksboro Pike

June 24, 2019:
South Knoxville, Woodlawn Christian Church, 4339 Woodlawn Pike

Sept. 17, 2019: East Knoxville, Beck Cultural Exchange Center, 1927 Dandridge Avenue

Dec. 5, 2019: West Knoxville, Arnstein Jewish Community Center, 6800 Deane Hill Drive
