Thank you and we look forward to staying connected with you as we work together as a community to get through this challenging time.
We encourage everyone to take care of one another. These are the moments that test a community but can also bring out the best in us.

Please do your part in minimizing the spread of this virus which can be extremely dangerous to those most vulnerable in our community.

Are you having trouble finding food during the Covid 19 shelter in place order?
The Community Capitals Framework (CCF) is an approach originally developed by economists Jan and Cornelia Flora to analyze communities and community development efforts from a systems perspective. The Floras found that the communities that best supported economic development focused on seven types of capital, not just traditional investment in real estate.
The Sheriff's Office and DSAL have adapted the model to frame a bold new approach to public safety. Community Capitals policing leverages:
“Traditional” community-oriented and problem-solving policing
The Police Activities League model: DSAL's soccer, boxing, fitness and events
Creative Placemaking: murals, festivals, and performances
Economic Development: working to create new opportunities for business and entrepreneurs
to rebuild the social fabric, foster collective efficacy and promote a sense of permanence among community members.
