Project T.I.P.S. events have been cancelled for the summer of 2020 due to COVID-19 concerns

 

Project T.I.P.S. (Trust, Information, Programs & Services) is a series of events during the summer months where community agencies and law enforcement personnel work in selected neighborhoods to rebuild trust amongst residents and to share valuable information. Locations are selected by Rochester Police Deputy Chief, LaRon Singletary, along with his command staff, with collaboration from the Rochester Fire Department and other partner agencies.

Following the success of the inaugural Project T.I.P.S. event in August 2008 in the Dewey and Driving Park community, Project T.I.P.S. has been brought to various other neighborhoods each summer.

Since its inception, Project T.I.P.S. has quickly evolved into a community-wide effort with support and participation from the Partners Against Violence Everywhere (PAVE) Initiative, Project Exile Advisory Board, Rochester Police Department, Rochester Fire Department, United States Marshals Service, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Urban League, City of Rochester Recreation Department, New York State Police, New York State Parole, Pathways to Peace, Monroe County District Attorney's Office, Monroe County Probation, Monroe County Sheriff's Department, US Attorney's Office, Monroe County Department of Human Services, Humane Society at Lollypop Farm, Strong Memorial Hospital, and numerous other law enforcement and community agencies.

Attendees are able to speak with law enforcement and other community agencies, recieve information and valuable items, have a cookout, and play games.
