Broward County, FL – In November 2009, community leaders identified 44 areas within Broward County that are consistently plagued with prostitution, drugs, violence, and theft. At the BOLD Justice Nehemiah Action in April 2010, leaders secured commitments from four different law enforcement agencies to investigate and take action on these areas. Since the Action, police protection has been increased in many areas, primarily Ft. Lauderdale’s Sistrunk Corridor and the Hollywood area. Within two months of the action, 25 arrests had been made in these two areas, which included the majority of “hot spots” identified.
