Operation Weed and Seed Fact Sheet   [open pdf - 56KB]

This fact sheet provides information on 'Operation Weed and Seed,' a U.S. Department of Justice community-based initiative, which is an innovative and comprehensive multi-agency approach to law enforcement, crime prevention, and community revitalization. The strategy involves a two-pronged approach: law enforcement agencies and prosecutors cooperate in "weeding out" criminals who participate in violent crime and drug abuse; while "seeding" brings human services to the area, encompassing prevention, intervention, treatment, and neighborhood revitalization. This document provides information on the role of the United States attorney, official recognition, evaluation, oversight, and funding.
