Getting the Community Involved: Operation Weed and Seed

Weed and Seed was introduced as a general strategy, rather than a specific policy with a clearly identifiable implementation plan. Operation Weed and Seed was introduced at the Attorney General’s “Summit on Law Enforcement, Responses to Violent Crime; Public Safety in the Nineties” in March of 1991. Documents that detail the Weed and Seed strategy have since been revisited and revised and as a result, the program goals have been altered, including more of an emphasis on direct community involvement and control. The focus of the policy was more on law enforcement than on underlying causes of crime. Community policing was intended to serve as the bedrock principle that connects weeding and seeding. In 1994, the program was able to acquire some funding from the Edward Byrne Memorial Fund for State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance Program, which is part of the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1998. Weed and Seed justifies development of the inner-city solely in crime control terms.
