Protecting Neighborhoods

Abandoned homes are at risk of becoming havens for squatters, vandals and thieves.

That’s why CCSO has launched the Community Safety Team program. The effort pools resources like banks, Code Enforcement, homeowner associations and neighbors to keep vacant homes from falling into disrepair.

Based on the “Broken Window” theory, the program’s goal is to prevent homes from deteriorating and becoming attractive to criminals.
