Excerpt
Acknowledgements: This project could not have been accomplished without the gracious cooperation and participation of a number of individuals in Pittsburgh. Abt Associates would like to thank them for their significant contribution to this effort. Project Director Dave Farley, from the mayor?s office, was instrumental in providing insight, as well as facilitating site visits and access to key personnel in the Pittsburgh Weed and Seed movement. In addition, Project Coordinator John Tokarski was quite helpful in building our understanding of project operations and community dynamics. Further, we would like to acknowledge the cooperation and leadership of U. S. Attorney Fred Theiman in the Weed and Seed project. The Pittsburgh Police Department was also instrumental to our effort via their participation in interviews and ride alongs and the provision of data used in this report. In this regard, we would like to thank Chief MacNeely and Commander Baugner. We are indebted to these and other individuals at the Pittsburgh Weed and Seed site and hope they find this report useful. We would welcome the opportunity to work with them again in the future.
