The next in a series of neighborhood meetings focusing on neighborhood safety and awareness practices will be held in the 1st District (Fort Sanders and South Knoxville) on Tuesday, Aug. 30, from 6-8 p.m. at the Woodlawn Christian Church, 4339 Woodlawn Pike. The meeting will take place in the sanctuary.

The Neighborhood Safety and Awareness series is a collaboration between the City of Knoxville Office of Neighborhood Empowerment (ONE), Police Advisory and Review Committee, the Community Safety Department, Knoxville Police Department and the East Tennessee Valley Crime Stoppers initiative.

Residents of the 1st District are invited to learn about the types of crime happening in their neighborhoods and best practices for community safety, crime prevention, and safety awareness.
