Weed and Seed represents the Department's premier, neighborhood-based comprehensive crime control initiative. The weed and seed strategy is based on the premise that leaders from neighborhood and community organizations, including faith-based organizations, law enforcement and private enterprise, must leverage resources to solve community problems at the local level. Site funding generally provides resources for "weeding" activities, which include joint law enforcement operations and community policing, and "seeding" activities, which range from prevention activities located in Safe Havens to neighborhood physical improvement and economic development.
