Many of the citizens of the City of Wilson are experiencing a decreased sense of security due to increased juvenile delinquency and gang activity. The Wilson Police Department seeks to improve existing crime analysis and surveillance efforts targeted at delinquent youth and gang members. By expanding current systems, the City hopes to impact criminal conduct of at-risk youth, delinquent youth, and gang members through the use of covert and overt surveillance captured on digital recording systems; provide real-time monitoring of high crime areas; and more efficiently deploy resources through in-depth crime analysis. Focused mapping of juvenile and gang related activity, coupled with increased surveillance and recording of activity will decrease gang related vandalisms, decrease the number of calls related to youth congregating, increase youth/officer contacts, and decrease juvenile and gang related crime. All of these activities impact the community's sense of security. Progress will be measured by comparing intelligence and crime statistics prior to project implementation to statistics at intervals throughout the project. NCA/NCF
