Chief Ralph Godbee and other police officials will discuss the results of a "Broken Windows" pilot program aimed at reducing crime in a northwest Detroit neighborhood.
The community safety meeting begins Thursday evening at the North Rosedale Park Community House.
The long-range strategy developed with the New York-based Manhattan Institute for Policy Research includes efforts to maintain order, reduce fear, cut crime and improve the quality of life of residents.
"Broken Windows" is a decades-old method of community policing.
The Manhattan Institute's George Kelling has been working with Detroit police on the crime prevention approach. Kelling is one of the authors of a 1982 magazine article spouting the benefits of saving neighborhoods by putting more officers on foot patrols and focusing on issues that might appear insignificant.
