TASK 13Neighborhood Safety AssessmentAs I led my avatar through Sentinel City, I noticed many safety hazards along the way. Nightingale Square appeared to be the least hazardous, while the condition of Industrial Heights was deplorable. Among all the neighborhoods I noticed trash spilling on the sidewalks and roads. The trash attracted rodents and stray dogs which could be seen throughout the city. Dog bites and animal homelessness were noted to be a big problem according to City Hall. Loitering was another problem that was apparent throughout the city. Sometimes groups or individuals, walking or disabled were seen on the streets, without anywhere safer to go. Buildings, especiallybuildings, in Industrial Park were noted to be in extreme disrepair with graffiti all over the outside. Burning broken down cars were seen in the streets. The school was just next to the leastsafe part of Sentinel City in the community of Industrial Heights. The school was next to the soup kitchen and church, where a large part of the homeless population congregated. The restaurants and grocery stores seen had poor sanitation grades and issues with foodborne illness.
