Brunswick Weed and Seed
Weed and Seed is a community-based strategy sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice that aims to prevent, control, and reduce violent crime, drug abuse, and gang activity among youth and adults in designated high-crime neighborhoods.
The Strategy: A Two-Pronged Approach
A collaborative effort between law enforcement, residents, prosecutors and the City of Brunswick to pave the way for
"weeding out" those who participate in crime and drug activity. Simultaneously, Human Service organizations provide prevention, intervention,
treatment and neighborhood restoration that are "seeded" into the target area to strengthen it.
How Brunswick Weed and Seed Began:
In 2007 Brunswick was designated an official Weed and Seed site. Under the leadership of the U.S. Attorney's Office, it emphasizes the importance of community involvement in law enforcement. This administration has developed goals that meet the community's needs of improving living conditions. With these goals in mind, the Brunswick, Georgia Weed and Seed team works to improve the quality of life in our area.
The Brunswick Georgia Weed and Seed Strategy is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice, U.S. Attorney's office and the City of Brunswick.For more information on the Weed and Seed Initiative please reference:
