NORWALK, Conn. -- To act on a grant the U.S. Department of Justice awarded to the City of Norwalk last fall to promote a "Safer South Norwalk," starting immediately, grant partners will interview South Norwalk residents and business owners in key neighborhoods to get their input on crime and the solutions they would like to see.

Mayor Harry Rilling stated: “This is a chance for South Norwalk residents and businesses to express their concerns and have their voices heard. After this planning phase, we will be applying for implementation funding to put the best ideas into practice.”

The project will be led by Jeanette John-Pierre, a South Norwalk resident for more than 25 years. Jean-Pierre most recently worked for the Norwalk Community Health Center and has degrees in social work and public health. She speaks Spanish, French and Creole, in addition to English, and will be able to interview residents in their native language.

She will be organizing a door-to- door interview campaign, as well as several focus groups.

For those who have questions or would like to be involved, please e-mail Jean-Pierre at jpierre@norwalkct.org.
