CAPIC Public Saftey Program
In 1995 CAPIC was commissioned by the City of Revere to prepare grant applications for the municipality, specifically the Revere Police Department. CAPIC continues to provide these same services for the City and the Police Department. It should be noted that during this time CAPIC has also prepared applications for the Revere Housing Authority as well as the Revere School Department, the Wakefield Police Department, and the Boston and Maine Railroad Police Department. CAPIC has extensive experience and expertise in public safety, law enforcement, social service contract management, and all aspects of planning and program implementation. CAPIC performs writing, research, analysis, and full preparation of all state and federal applications for the City of Revere including budgets. CAPIC has worked on numerous initiatives such as: Community Policing, homeland security, Governor’s Highway Safety Bureau Traffic Enforcement, Local Law Enforcement Block Grants, COPS in Schools, domestic violence prevention and awareness, and juvenile delinquency prevention.
This formal contract has been instrumental in fostering solid working relationships with other local (human service) agencies and service providers, hence broadening the scope of services available for CAPIC clients, while at the same time strengthening crime prevention partnerships, encouraging community participation, and improving the quality of life for CAPIC clients. CAPIC also rents space at the Irene O’Connell Center located on 65 Nahant Avenue, Revere, to the Police Department. The Irene O’Connell Center gymnasium is home to the Revere Police Department’s Police Activities League (P.A.L.) programs and activities. CAPIC refers at-risk, low-income youth to the P.A.L. Program. The P.A.L. Program greatly benefits the neighborhood and community and reduces drug use and abuse, crime, and youth violence. CAPIC in collaboration with the Revere Police Department is committed to working to increase services for at-risk youth, especially minority youth, to ensure that the needs of all those living in the City are met.
It should also be noted that in July 2010, CAPIC formally partnered with the Winthrop Police Department on a domestic violence program grant, and worked with Department to provide crucial services for victims of domestic violence. Although the grant that initiated this partnership ended in June 2011, CAPIC is still working with the Winthrop Police Department to ensure that victim’s needs are being met in a comprehensive manner.
