Goal: Improve safety through partnerships with residents, the Chicago Police Department (CPD), Chicago Housing Authority (CHA), property managers, businesses, and community- based organizations.
Public safety was rated in the community survey as one of the top priorities of residents. While progress has been made, all residents should feel safe throughout the neighborhood. Trusting relationships take time to develop but are needed among neighbors with the police, institutions, and local businesses. Extra effort is needed to engage youth in the process and provide the tools and resources they need to be safe and productive citizens.
