National Night Out and Community Safety
FCUAC creates at least one community safety event each year
When begun in 2010, the event dates were the National Night Out dates in August. A few years later the service evolved to also bring community safety to existing community event schedules.
Currently, the service has lead the creation of a community events, worked in support of community groups, and provided sponsorship funding to groups working independently. As with all services, FCUAC can also support events with maps and spatial analysis.
The intent is to stimulate neighborhood block watch.
