RESOLUTION NO. 100901

 

Designating October as Crime Prevention Month in Kansas City, Missouri.

 

WHEREAS, the vitality of Kansas City, Missouri depends on how safe we keep our homes, neighborhoods, schools, workplaces, and communities; and

 

WHEREAS, crime and fear of crime destroy our trust in others and in civic institutions, threatening the community’s health, prosperity, and quality of life; and

 

WHEREAS, the personal injury, financial loss, and community deterioration resulting from crime are intolerable and require investment from the whole community; and

 

WHEREAS, crime prevention initiatives must include self-protection and security, but they must go beyond these to promote collaborative efforts to make neighborhoods safer for all ages and to develop positive opportunities for young people; and

 

WHEREAS, effective crime prevention programs excel because of partnerships among the City of Kansas City, Missouri, Kansas City, Missouri Police Department, other governmental bodies, neighborhood groups, and individuals; and

 

WHEREAS, all Kansas Citians should become more aware of crime prevention efforts within the community to take action at the neighborhood level in order to nurture a safe, caring city environment for future generations; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council do hereby officially designate October 2010 as Crime Prevention Month in Kansas City, Missouri and call upon all citizens, government agencies, public and private institutions, and businesses to invest in the power of crime prevention and work together to make Kansas City a safer community; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that this Resolution be spread upon the Minutes of the Council in testimony thereof and copies hereby be presented to the City of Kansas City, Missouri Neighborhood Prosecution Team, the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department, and neighborhood leaders in token of their tremendous efforts to make Kansas City a safe place to live and work.
