he broken window theory was popularized 35 years ago as way to look at cities holistically by taking care of the small things like cleaning up the litter, trash graffiti, broken windows etc.
This type of presentation
entices crime, social problems and is unfriendly to education. If we
donít take care of the small things, these issue manifest into

Phill Bruce is a local paramedic, and also works as Public Safety Advisory Committee member.
