The First Precinct Community Assisted Public Safety (CAPS) meeting will be held tonight, Wednesday, May 13, at 6PM at East District Initiative (701 N 25th Street – 2nd Floor).
Via the city site – What is CAPS?
CAPS seeks to eliminate blight and restore luster to our neighborhoods by partnering with citizens to identify and eliminate the problems associated with the most troublesome properties in our City. CAPS provides a vehicle for us to work together to ensure that each of Richmond’s neighborhoods is clean, safe, and healthy.
The CAPS philosophy recognizes that code enforcement alone cannot deal with blighted and other problem properties in the City. Nor can the Police alone always solve crime-plagued properties. A key feature of CAPS is that numerous city departments work together as a team with citizens to ensure that a problem property will stay a priority until a satisfactory resolution is reached. The CAPS process has achieved outstanding results in all parts of the City.
