The last Neighborhood Safety Workshop of the year will provide residents of West Knoxville neighborhoods with advice on working with each other and City departments to respond to and reduce crime.


The Office of Neighborhoods, Police Advisory & Review Committee (PARC) and the Knoxville Police Department designed the workshops to present to residents in different areas of the city current data about crimes in their neighborhoods as well as advice on reducing and preventing those crimes.


Previous workshops in the series informed residents about neighborhood-specific crime statistics (available online via the LexisNexus Community Crime Map), smart safety habits and City resources to help neighbors report and respond to crime.


December’s presenters will highlight issues particular to West Knoxville neighborhoods, present data from all parts of the city, and share holiday-related safety tips. The meeting is open to residents of all Knoxville neighborhoods and will include a cumulative review of all the workshops.


Top crimes in Knoxville are theft, aggravated assault, and motor vehicle theft.
