Improved public safety is the linchpin in the Gwinnett Village Community Improvement District’s efforts to revitalize the area. If businesses and residents don’t feel that their community is safe, then it becomes increasingly difficult to attract additional investment.


The CID partners with the City of Norcross to provide additional police patrols for the portion of the district which falls within city limits. To date, the CID has funded 15,000 additional hours of police patrols. In addition, the CID has also funded 60,000 hours of private security patrols, protecting the investments of our local property owners and businesses.

Crime prevention efforts have yielded significant positive results in the form of crime reduction every year the CID has been in place. The Gwinnett Village CID will continue to work with local and county partners to ensure that the downward trend continues.


Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design

The philosophy is guided by four basic principals…

  • Access Control
  • Surveillance

  • Maintenance
