"Clean Sweep" Initiative
In 2016 Crime Stoppers WNY joined in the City of Buffalo's "Clean Sweep" community initiative. This "Clean Sweep" community initiative targets about three residential blocks throughout the city every week. Some volunteers help clean up trash, remove tree branches and check for safety hazards. Other organizations, such as Crime Stoppers WNY, meet with residents to explain what we are able to do by working with Law Enforcement to keep their communities safe.
