Description: The City of Manassas Park is in a period of serious transition that involves critical changes to the environment surrounding the youth of their community. Until approximately five years ago, they were a small community of 6,300 residents with a school population of approximately 1,500 students. At that time they were only experiencing a slight problem with specific crime related incidents involving the schools, after school activities and related youth/gangs crimes within the community. Most of the incidents involved only students associated with activities provided at the High School level. Recently, they have noticed an increase in certain disruptive and/or criminal activities within the entire City, school system, and throughout the City after normal school operations. Youth-related gang and criminal activities are increasing. These changes have alert them to potential problems related to the growth in population that they are experiencing. The police department, parks and recreations department and the school system are committed to proactively solving these emerging problems. The development of a School Resource Officer Program (during school) and a Community Resource Officer Program (after school) is essential to maintaining public and student safety. The Community Resource Officer will work directly with the entire community, youth groups, civic groups, and parks and recreations programs during the evening hours. As indicated, the increase in the local community and school population has been substantial and will continue to increase beyond the current student population of 2,300. Calls for police services during the past several years have increased to approximately 21,000 annually. The 2005 Congressional Earmark funds will provide the City of Manassas Park with the much needed resources to increase staffing levels, and improve proactive policing and services which will enhance the school resource and community resource programs.
