CCCO has held monthly safety committee meetings since May of 2016 with topics around reducing blight and crime in our neighborhoods. Committee meetings typically have attendance of between 15-30 people. CCCO has taken part in the Motor City Makeover clean-up efforts in 2016, 2017, and 2018. Through that event and other organized clean ups we have removed over 500 bags of trash, recycled over 400 tires, and boarded up at least 15 homes to date. Our safety committee members launched the Hope Citizen Patrol of Southwest Detroit in May of 2017. The radio patrol members have patrolled 2,043 miles in our neighborhood as of May 2018.
