Learn how your community can come together to build a safer community. WORK SMARTER - NOT HARDER.

Its focus is on the process of change and how to develop and engage leadership to improve the community’s quality of life. Course objectives include:

  • To provide information-networking resources for implementing Community Action Plans.
