When all the streets are bad(lands)

Press release: The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office, along with several other agencies, will conduct an “Operation Clean Sweep” event on Thursday, August 25, 2011 to clean up the Miller and Baars Street community. The clean-up will begin at 8:00 am at the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office Administration Building, 1700 West Leonard Street in Pensacola and will include the areas south of Texar to Crescent Drive.

The focus of “Operation Clean Sweep” is to work with Neighborhood Watch groups, residents, churches and business owners to control and prevent the damaging effects of criminal activity through Eradication, Enforcement and Education. The Operation Task Force works closely with Escambia County Animal Control, Environmental Law Enforcement, the United States Military, Escambia County Roads and Bridges and Neighborhood Watch groups to clean up neighborhoods and educate citizens on preventive measures that could be implemented to minimize possible crimes.
