Rocky Mount City Council, NC

Public safety will always be a top priority for citizens; however, we must understand that we cannot police our way out of every problem. For this purpose, Jabaris plans to create a crime reduction strategy that focuses on bettering the community of Rocky Mount. This plan will include statistics and data from current and previous years, a police advisory board, and a mental health resource agent. This team along with other community leaders will help educate citizens on how to be alert, watchful and active within their neighborhoods. Jabaris also plans to partner with Edgecombe and Nash County Public Schools, Edgecombe and Nash County Courts and Judicial System, and local non-profit organizations to establish a youth intervention program that will provide life skills, positive reinforcement and a safe place for social interaction.
