CCCSA is working on crime prevention initiatives to maintain low crime rates. The safety project includes the mural project, mural tour, community cleanup, safety seminars etc. Through a series of planned events, CCCSA intends to improve awareness of personal safety and crime alertness. This will create a sense of safety and security within the Chinese Community
Mural Project & Mural Tours
Mural Project is meant to discourage vandalism by placing beautiful murals in Chinatown. Mural tours are also conducted as a means to attract attention to the murals in areas that have higher crime traffic. This will increase the traffic of pedestrian and allow higher crime traffic areas to be monitored by the community.
Chinatown Clean Up Event
Another initiative is the Chinatown Clean up Event, which is meant to restore and beautify the community. This will create a better overall image and enhance the welcomeness of Chinatown.
We work closely with other community organizations and hold fraud prevention seminars as to enhance crime prevention knowledge among community members.
Safety Ambassador Program
The purpose of Safety Ambassador Program is to promote volunteerism among seniors. The project has 3 objectives:
- Train older adults to be safety ambassadors so they can gain a sense of control and empowered.
- Safety Ambassadors involve in a public awareness campaign and education for other marginalized members of community to increase the sense of safety.
- Through the work of Safety Ambassadors, the public will have increased access to linguistically appropriate crime prevention resources and information and have increased awareness of crime risk and prevention.
