Weed : Law Enforcement
Weed and Seed is foremost a strategy–rather than a program– which aims to prevent, control, and reduce violent crime, drug abuse, and gang activity in targeted high-crime neighborhoods across the country. Weed and Seed sites range in size from several neighborhood blocks to 15 square miles.

Upper Darby Department of Leisure Services supports this slogan and has adopted our own “Something for Everyone” policy, striving to continually provide wholesome, enjoyable, and beneficial activities to all members of our community.
