Little Earth Community Works to Halt Ongoing Violent Crime


A drop in 9-1-1 calls for help might seem like a good thing, but to those at Little Earth, it's disturbing.

Over the past year, Little Earth leaders noticed that 9-1-1 calls diminished, but crime didn't. As a result, they applied for, and won, a federal grant from the U.S. Department of Justice for $155,000 to help make sense of what's going on.

Little Earth is a public housing complex in South Minneapolis. The area resembles an urban reservation.
