What's a CoNee G and how does it relate to community policing?
A CoNee G is a cooperative neighborhood gathering.
It brings neighbors together around common interests and goals in healthy, sustainable ways that minimize the role of societal privilege. A CoNee G is organized by community members based on community interests and concerns without requiring an exchange of money at the events.
Community policing is about strengthening communities such that neighbors know each other and support each other. Crime reduction comes from people feeling known and valued and supported in their communities. CoNee Gs make it easy for neighbors to get together around common interests and to support each other during this time of unsettling change -- and beyond! What's it look like?
