Daytona Beach, FL – In 2001, FAITH identified and brought to the attention of local officials almost 250 locations in Daytona Beach and another 18 places in Deltona where problems with drugs and crime persisted. To continue police and community collaboration and accountability, FAITH continues to work with Chief Michael Chitwood to distribute “Hot Spot Cards” and conducts quarterly meetings with the police department on the status of drugs and crime in the community. “Hot Spot Cards” enable citizens to report criminal activity anonymously and provides a mechanism for the community to hold police accountable for a response.
