Targeted Enforcement Area Crime Strategy
This week our Community Response Team (CRT) implemented a new strategy to address the
ongoing drug, prostitution and other crimes in our three targeted enforcement areas: E 23rd St
and 13th Av., 29th St. – 14th & 15th Aves. and in/around the Peavey Park area.
CRT and Beat officers have identified twenty-nine (29) of the most prolific offenders.

properties in the three target areas.
The community must have a vital role in this strategy. We will be putting out requests
for community impact statements. We can meet with residents a do them together. You can do

We must have your input about the impact of these crimes on your life and on the
community. We need you to write community impact statements that can go to the
judges at the time of sentencing. Without your input, the revolving door will continue
