The city of Phoenix and Grand Canyon University announced the expansion of an on-going partnership through a $125,000 investment to fund public safety efforts, including a drowning-prevention program and graffiti abatement services.

GCU’s $125,000 investment will fund the fire department’s Car 99, currently designated as a potential cut on the city’s trial budget. Car 99 provides proactive support to ensure residential pool fences meet city code requirements to prevent child drowning, among other vital services. The funding will also support the city’s graffiti abatement efforts and will help foster a graffiti-free zone in the Canyon Corridor. Graffiti abatement services also could be impacted during the budget process.

During the last two years, GCU has contributed a total of $1.375 million toward public safety and education efforts in the community. In July 2012, GCU and the Phoenix Police Department entered into a $500,000, five-year partnership to stop crime in the Canyon Corridor. In September 2013, GCU partnered with Phoenix Union High School District to create a Learning Lounge on GCU’s campus for the benefit of Alhambra High School Students. This current investment will support neighborhood revitalization, public safety and drowning prevention efforts.
