Engage with Projects and Initiatives

Community Safety and Teen Violence Prevention

The City of Fredericksburg and Fredericksburg City Public Schools continue to place a priority on school safety and security as they plan for the 2023-24 school year. In an effort to keep safety as our top priority, a Community Engagement Roadmap has been jointly created by the City and FCPS. It addresses teen violence in our City and seeks to engage our whole community in support of the City’s and FCPS’ safety and prevention measures to help keep our youth and our community safe. Read more here.  Public engagement and community support are essential to this work. Do you have a comment or question to submit about the City’s Focus on Community Safety? Please submit it here.
