Each year, citizens, communities, and police departments across the country celebrate October as Crime Prevention Month. We are all affected by crime in one way or another, and Crime Prevention Month is a great way for people to get involved in keeping their communities safe! Whether or not you are impacted by crime directly, this is a perfect opportunity to learn what efforts are being taken to keep your community safe. Everyone should be aware of important safety issues and how to keep themselves and others out of harm’s way. The Community Police Partnering Center is once again embracing Crime Prevention Month by organizing the CPOP Summit and Banquet to make the community aware of current safety issues and give them tools to keep them safe.
Breakout sessions at the summit will include: Sessions on the statues of the Cincinnati Initiative to Reduce Violence (CIRV) and the important role citizens can have in reducing gun violence; how the Cincinnati Police Department is using state-of-the-art analysis to respond to neighborhood crime trends; dismantling the “don’t snitch” street code and the damage it is doing to our communities; the city’s commitment to furthering the work of the collaborative agreement; as well as many other topics related to our city and its communities. The summit will run until 5:30 p.m. and is open to the public.
Immediately following the summit is our much anticipated Fifth Annual Community Problem-oriented Policing Awards Banquet. A celebration of the best in citizen-police problem solving efforts from over the past year will take place at the Cintas Center! Our keynote speaker this year is the Reverend Eugene F. Rivers III, founder of the Azusa Christian Community and president of the National Ten point Leadership Foundation, among other accolades. The banquet will immediately follow the summit and will run until 8:00 p.m. It is open to the public.
