Downtown Business Watch 5/9/17

Downtown Business Watch


Tuesday, May 9th

[Great Falls, May 2, 2017]  The Downtown Safety Alliance, a committee of the Downtown Development Partnership, announces the next in our education programs for our Downtown Business Watch program.

Join us Tuesday, May 9th in the NeighborWorks Learning Center at 509 1st Ave South, beginning at 5:30pm.

An informative presentation on the past year of the Data-Driven Approach to Crime and Traffic Safety (DDACTS) program will be presented by BRIC Officer Adam Hunt, Great Falls Police Department.  The goal of the Data-Driven Approach to Crime and Traffic Safety (DDACTS) was to decrease social harm and improve the quality of life in our community.  Drawing on the deterrent value of highly visible traffic enforcement and the knowledge that crimes often involve motor vehicles, DDACTS integrates location-based crime and traffic crash data to determine the most effective methods for deploying law enforcement. The program was implemented in May, 2016 and Adam will bring us up to date on the status and some results in the past year.

This meeting is sponsored by the NeighborWorks Great Falls, refreshments will be provided by Chopz.

Business Watch meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday of every other month and last one hour.  The meeting format has been established to allow for a 30-minute presentation on a specific topic, 15 minutes for questions and answers on that topic and closes with 15 minutes of discussion on current downtown issues.  Refreshments will be served.  Downtown Business Watch meetings are open to anyone interested in attending.
