The Community Action Team is a coalition of concerned citizens who have taken on the responsibility of addressing byproducts of the methamphetamine trade in our community. Such byproducts include crime, environmental damage, and neighborhood disturbance. Our goal is to educate others about drug-affected neighborhoods and facilitate prevention, enforcement, rehabilitation and restitution in order to heal afflicted neighborhoods and individuals.
CAT programs include:
* Meth lab identification
* Gang awareness
* Team approach to monitoring suspicious neighborhood activities
* Assertive neighborhood watch program "CAT Watch"
* Educational information ranging from seminars to neighborhood group meetings to downloadable forms
* Referral resources for addicts and families seeking help
* Mystery camera program
The neighborhood CAT Watch program is a proactive assertive "tool kit" of activities which reduces the likelihood of drug and gang-related crime. CAT Watch was developed with three goals in mind:
1. To educate communities on the devastating effects of drugs and gangs on individuals and neighborhoods
2. The unite neighborhoods in the battle against drugs and related crime
3. To restore and maintain the community in which we live through awareness and activitism one block at a time.
