SunTrust Foundation Supports Cop on the Block Program

Thanks to the generous support of SunTrust Foundation, SNDSI and the Pittsburgh Community Improvement Association are pleased to announce completion of their first Cop on the Block House. In partnership with the Atlanta Police Foundation, this high quality, healthy home is currently being marketed to Atlanta Police Officers at a subsidized rent/sale price in order to increase public safety levels in the neighborhood as a part of the Preservation of Pittsburgh. The officer who moves into the home will be allowed to keep a patrol car there when they are off duty as a visual sign of the increased police presence. The partners plan to rehab an additional four houses for police officers.
