A quartet of DSU students are using a good portion of their summer to help make a crime-challenged section of Dover a safer place to live.

Four DSU students –Dashayna Brown, Danielle McAllister, Ruth Kotter and Eric Wright – are serving as community outreach and engagement specialists as part of the Lights On Dover Strong Program.

While enduring hot summer mornings and afternoons, the DSU interns are providing residences just north of downtown Dover with security lighting designed to discourage criminal activity. Toward that end, the students are installing LED light bulbs in the front of residences and mounting motion sensitive floodlights in the back of those same homes.
