A recent study in New Haven showed that SCF reports are inverse to crime. This has inspired a few folks to attempt to drive up SCF usage in these higher crime communities to see if there is any correlation in the increase in reports to the decrease in crime. While we're not naive to think that poverty, lack of education, drugs, gangs and the other usual suspects of contributing factors to high crime neighborhoods are going to magically go away, we would also be naive to think that better communication might not help improve things.
On Thursday at 6:30 PM all are welcome to a working session to help get out the word about SCF in neighborhoods where reporting is lower than average across the City of New Haven. If you're a marketing guru, campaign master, designer or a behavioral psychologist this would be a great place for you. As always engineers and programmers are always welcome too.
Here's the event if you'd like to add it to your calendar:
