RIVIERA BEACH, Fla. (January 27, 2015) – The Riviera Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (RBCRA) is announcing the distribution of 300 free SmartWater™ CSI kits to residents in the Riviera Beach Heights community. The RBCRA is also launching a Neighborhood Watch program as part of an overall effort aimed at improving both the safety and appearance of this historically challenged neighborhood.
“The CRA has launched a series of programs to improve the living conditions for residents of Riviera Beach Heights, and these kits will help increase the safety of our families while deterring criminals,” said Tony Brown, Executive Director of the Riviera Beach Community Redevelopment Agency.
With a goal of reducing and deterring crime, the kits will be distributed by Ambassadors of the RBCRA’s Clean and Safe Program, along with instructions on how to use them. The kits will be free to residents who live between West 10th Street and West 6th Street between Old Dixie Highway and Australian Avenue. The kits contain a clear traceable liquid with a unique forensic code that can be applied to valuables, which if taken and recovered, then allows authorities to identify the owner of the property. Interested residents who don’t live in Riviera Beach Heights can have their names added to a list for future distribution efforts.
For additional information about the program, contact, Riviera Beach CRA Manager of Community Safety Initiatives and Public Safety Officer Roderick McLeod at 561-844-3408.
