Hayden-Harmon Foundation Support

Thank you to the Hayden-Harmon Foundation for its support of High Point Community Against Violence. On February 24, Dr. Patrick Harmon called our Executive Director to share the good news of a financial gift that will enable HPCAV to improve its services. We are grateful for their belief in our mission.

Israeli Documentary Team in Town

A documentary film making team from Israel arrived in High Point today for about a week’s worth of filming and interviewing as the first step in creating a documentary about the High Point model for violence reduction.   The focus of the documentary will be our Drug Market Intervention, which was the first application of the strategy in High Point.  As mentioned in an earlier post, the Washington Drive area is the targeted neighborhood for this latest effort.  A call-in or notification meeting with individuals identified as causing the greatest problems in this neighborhood will be held on Tuesday, February 9th.  The documentary will be aired on an educational channel in Europe and will be seen in seven different countries.

High Point has been visited by representatives of many cities, states and countries over the last several years.  Our Executive Director, Jim Summey, some other HP CAV members as well as officers from the High Point Police Department have provided training to cities across the nation.  Our Police Chief, Jim Fealy, has presented this strategy at The Hague in the Netherlands. 

This model is one that can be replicated and it is our pleasure to share that information with communities everywhere.
