The award recipients were honored for their dedication to crime prevention in the communities where they live. Their accomplishments include overseeing Crime Watch and child-identification programs; volunteering their time to teach prevention education in schools, churches and senior centers; and organizing community events that educate their neighbors about the importance of prevention.
Lt. Gov. Schweiker oversees Pennsylvania's Weed and Seed Initiative, a program that seeks to improve the quality of life in high-crime communities. Violent offenders are "weeded" from a neighborhood through intensive law- enforcement and prosecution efforts, then the neighborhood is "seeded" with revitalization, prevention, intervention and treatment.
