Considerable progress has been made in implementing the Weed and Seed strategy in over 300 sites with DOJ funding (and in additional "Officially Recognized" sites without funding). Under the guidance of the United States Attorney in each site, Federal, State, and local officials are working together to implement a wide variety of activities designed to reduce drug crime, gangs, and other violent crime out of high crime neighborhoods and to revitalize those areas by implementing a range of human service programs and economic development to keep crime from recurring. These activities are based on four core elements that are essential to the success of the Weed and Seed strategy: enhanced law enforcement; community policing as a bridge between law enforcement and social revitalization efforts; prevention, early intervention, and treatment efforts; and neighborhood restoration, including opportunities for economic development.
