North Greenwood Crime Down 56% —Scientologists Back Community With Continued Cleanups

Volunteers gather at the North Greenwood Martin Luther King Community Center to launch a community cleanup.

Volunteers from the Church of Scientology and The Way to Happiness Association of Tampa Bay join North Greenwood residents in another neighborhood cleanup.

Scientology News reports on volunteers from the Church of Scientology are celebrating their community contributions which contributed to lowering North Greenwood's crime rate. A recent Pinellas County report shows a 56 percent drop in crime since it peaked in July 2015. North Greenwood is a Clearwater, Florida, municipal zone of over 7,000 residents located half a mile from Coachman Park.

North Greenwood residents and volunteers from The Way to Happiness Association of Tampa Bay, the Church of Scientology and the Foundation for a Drug Free World continue to carry out neighborhood cleanups—one of 20 strategies named by the National Crime Prevention Council for reducing crime in a community.

Volunteers also distribute copies of The Way to Happiness to residents and business owners. The commonsense guide to better living written by humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard provides a moral compass. It has brought calm to communities torn by violence, peace to areas ravaged by civil strife and self-respect to millions of individuals.

Cleanup volunteers rally at the Martin Luther King Jr., Community Center and target specific neighborhood locations.
