For example, I could introduce community engagement programs and a neighbourhood watch program to keep crime at bay and this would provide residents opportunity to work together to solve a range of neighbourhood challenges. These programmes aim to strengthen social capital as people form tighter bonds within the community. In turn, it seeks to deter people from committing
Social organization and controlled neighborhoods, are also often backed by strong networks (church organizations, police presence, and youth activities) (Dummond, pg. 195). The combination of parental or familial involvement with strong social controls can often stop a neighborhood from being taken over by street code or decrease the negative impact the street code has on their neighborhood. It is a direct correlation with Agnew’s General Strain Theory, thus neighborhoods that experience less strain will fare better. So if the neighboring community experiences less strain, has better community support (police response, community involvement such as churches and youth organizations) are reasons that neighboring communities experience differing impacts of street
An organization may choose to adopt an extended term or brief term strategy. It would be in the organization best interest to devise and generate public value connecting the organization to its environment. At the ends the planners might want to not encourage a formal strategic plan or might seek it to move to the conclusion.

Without collaboration with community partners, it makes it unclear what program should be utilized with researchers to combat youth violence in communities. This article highlights how complex collaboration is between community partners and researchers can be even when researchers know what needs to be done.

It is therefore important to educate the individuals in society on the importance of having respect for all its sectors, which will help in embracing a diverse and pluralistic society. An individual is not born with the knowledge of racial discrimination, as children they learn from their parents, the society’s ways of life and religion. This explains that ways in which an individual is socialized can make them have a negative attitude towards a particular race, Therefore it is important for institutions at different learning levels come up with diverse strategies that will aid in educating students on the bad effects of racism. Racism victims not only need to be protected and acknowledged but their quality of life also needs to be improved. These victims are mainly women, children, refugees, and migrants from other countries like the black Americans.
It is important for schools to have SROs because the SRO’s role on school campus is keeping students safe and supporting the education mission not only as law enforcement officer but also as a teacher and a counselor. They aren’t at schools “just to bust people.” School Resource Officers are there to teach about the law and students rights and also to protect and help students succeed in a safe learning environment; this equals less crime and more success. Crime and Disciplinary Infractions on Campus and Beyond
According to Do Policies Aimed Toward the Homeless Help Families? The Detroit Experience, “Within Detroit...our findings also offer a call to action for local policy makers to engage with community members to ensure that policy decisions are well informed and reach the intended recipients in a meaningful way” (Grim, Gutlekin, Brush, 2015, p. 11). Unsurprisingly, there is a big gap between policy makers and those who these policies are aimed towards. Most politicians are not really helping to fix the problem of homelessness, but rather prolong the time till they will inevitably have to deal with it. If policy makers were to interact more with the homeless, then they could create better policies that are better aimed towards them.
It is essential for schools to ensure rules and amendments are concisely communicated to staff, parents, and students; ensure consistency and be unbiased with all students; ensure school officials rightly stress their concern about violence, drug use, and other criminal behavior among the student population and implement positive strategies with students to help them make better choices in life. In addition, the Fourth Amendment plays a major role in the community. It is importance for schools to develop a relationship with local businesses and community leaders; because school aged students are our future community leaders. It is also important for the schools to collaborate with community leaders such as federal agencies and universities to develop and implement programs, which address violence and other criminal behavior in schools as a prevention
However, these controls may always fail in detecting a new and still undiscovered diseases. What would really be able to make a difference in this field is a stronger education on such themes so that everyone (both adults and children, both men and women) would be able to recognize whether certain food or practices are risky for their health or not. Initiatives for achieving a good level of education on this matter may include both specific classes held during school time for younger people and social-marketing initiatives built in order to raise awareness among
The Benefits of Required Community Service Community service is talked about amongst everyone. Community service is unpaid community service work that benefits others in a community. All high schools should be required to have a minimum requirement of community service as a graduation requirement because it will help the student’s mental health, allow them to play a role in their community and establish lifelong habits. Community service boosts mental health because contributing to one’s community can show student that anyone can make a difference. All community service helps no matter how little .Many may say that they do not find helping a homeless shelter their ideal saturday activity but once the students realize the impact they have on the less fortunate most will have a feeling of self accomplishment.
Another step is to have a list of resources nearby to provide support for the student. A club or community center could help the student better assimilate and cope with the change differently than I can better they could better understand the student’s feelings. Also, an important step is to have an open mind and self-awareness. No one is perfect and mistakes are likely to happen; therefore, both parties needs to have an open mind and understand that I could take time to find the “happy medium” of the cultures. Also, understanding the bias and racial issues that could exist in the school is important because it helps put the student’s cultural issues with context (Arrendonado, 2001).
From Roussos’s presentation to Karner and Castro’s articles, I concur to the idea of change has to begin in the present time in order for each other generations to continue to have resources that humanity has now. The idea that intellectual students could have influential in their community brings the idea that the knowledge young generations gain could help their community to lower the chance of high poverty rate, cities turning into urban sprawls and lower standards of living for humanity. All in all, Roussos, Castro, and Karner are activists that perceive the change humanity needs to make in order to avoid health issue, economic issue in the near
