"Public safety, traditionally the focus of police departments, is getting more attention from planners. There is general recognition that revitalization strategies need to address crime and fear of crime because families and businesses consider crime—as well as property values, schools, and neighborhood amenities—when deciding to stay in a neighborhood or move to a new one. As a result, planners are working with community police units to address public safety issues and to carry out neighborhood revitalization."
