Gwinnett --  The Gwinnett Place Community Improvement District (CID) used its first-ever “lunch and learn” session to bring local businesses together with the public safety personnel serving their area.

Representatives from Gwinnett Place Mall, Mall Corners, Santa Fe Mall, Pleasant Hill Plaza and Marketplace shopping center joined with Major Christa Spradley, commander of Gwinnett Police’s central precinct, other police officers and Gwinnett Clean and Beautiful Executive Director Connie Wiggins.

Joe Allen, Gwinnett Place CID executive director, said discussions ranged from crime prevention to methods of curbing graffiti. He said the session was overall positive, and more functions like this one are planned for the future.

“Our property and businesses owners are committed to keeping their investments and patrons safe, and the CID wants to support their efforts to do so,” Allen said. “Our crime statistics show continual double-digit reductions in almost every category, and we are working hard to ensure that trend continues for greater Gwinnett Place.”

In addition to closely coordinating efforts with Gwinnett Police, the CID conducts daily community patrols throughout the week and funds private security for weekend service.

More information about the CID’s public safety efforts is available under “project initiatives” at the CID’s website – GwinnettPlaceCID.com.
