Neighborhood Safety and Engagement

The Office of Neighborhood Safety and Engagement (ONSE) is dedicated to reducing  youth gun and other violence and increasing neighborhood safety through a collaborative communitywide approach. The office will assist with the development and implementation of community-wide crime reduction goals, and work directly with City departments, concerned citizens, and partner organizations to identify and connect individuals to support.

The Office of Neighborhood Safety and Engagement will focus on: 

  • Identifying and engaging individuals at the highest risk of participating in or being a victim of violent crime,
  • Connecting them to comprehensive support services, and 
  • Providing an "off-ramp" for individuals to pursue positive growth and development opportunities.
