The U.S. Attorney's Office has joined with the City of Pine Bluff, the Pine Bluff Police Department, and the Interested Citizens for Voter Registration to form a Weed and Seed site in the University Park area of Pine Bluff. The University Park initiative was first recognized by the Department of Justice as an official Weed and Seed site in February of 2000. The site applied for federal funding and began receiving funding in March of 2001. Through the program, communities bring together neighborhood stakeholders, such as business owners, school officials, residents and law enforcement, to "weed" out crime and then "seed" the neighborhood through economic development. The Weed and Seed program has enhanced the quality of life in the University Park area and has also reduced crime substantially there.
