The website Safer Charleston, West Virginia (www.safercharlestonwv.com) is a proactive movement aimed to keep Charleston safe for its residents. By encouraging and educating the community, it seeks to enable Charlestonians to further improve the quality of life in the city, by doing their share in crime prevention.
It features an extensive list of organizations to contact for any kind of events that need to be reported — accidents, traffic tie-up or a malfunctioning sewer. There is also how-to guide for coping in emergecy situations, as well as how to secure personal safety.
There is also a section for different projects for the benefit of the community: for the improvements of abandoned property, for promoting better living arrangements, and for making streets safer and cleaner.
