HOW WE SERVE

SAFETY

Safe & Welcoming Communities

Police are the Community. And the Community are the Police. Our officers and residents will value collaborative relationships to build trust and prevent crime. Neighborhood watch organizations and accessible safety centers will provide residents with the training and services that support safe communities.

Relationship-Based Policing

Public Safety Partnerships

Neighborhood Safety Centers

Working together, we will support the change needed to resolve conflict and reduce crime in our community. As police officers and residents invest in relationships together, we will grow a sense of trust and safety throughout our Northside neighborhoods.

Making it happen.

We know this will take time. As we work towards our long-term goals, there are immediate and exciting changes for our community to support:

Neighborhood Officers

Support the Northview Heights Safety Center and increase the number of officers assigned to and relationally engaged with a specific neighborhood

Diversion

Divert individuals involved in non-violent crimes from the criminal justice system to proven prevention program

Public Safety

Expand resident participation in more frequent Block Watch and Public Safety Council meetings

We need each other.

In every community, there is a give and take. Sometimes you are the one offering support and other times you need to receive it. It’s all part of our work together.
