CENTER POINT — A study by the Justice Programs Diagnostic Center from the U.S. Department of Justice Office will be presented at Center Point City Hall on May 2 at 1:30 p.m.
Last year, the Center Point City Council asked the Department of Justice to assist in finding potential solutions to counter crime in the city. The study would be conducted by the diagnostic center to provide “customized technical assistance to help state, county, city and tribal communities build capacity to reduce violent and other serious crimes.”
“We appreciate the Office of Justice Programs agreeing to conduct the study for the City of Center Point,” said Center Point Mayor Thomas Henderson. “We are looking forward to the results of the study and further cooperation with the Office of Justice Programs.”
The following will be discussed:
- Analysis of key findings
- Model programs for crime prevention
- Recommendations for improvements and greater community involvement in crime reduction practices
Center Point City Hall is located at 2209 Center Point Parkway.
