Increase Attendance at Community Safety Trainings
Met & Exceeded
Safe communities require people to be engaged in improving the health and well-being of their own neighborhoods. One measure of this involvement is the extent to which community members are participating in citywide opportunities to gain new skills and knowledge that will help them keep their community safe. In 2014, we exceeded our 2020 goal for increasing attendance at community trainings. As these trainings continue, it may be useful to explore the benefits that participants gained from these trainings and the degree to which they increased community safety.
Call to Action:
- Learn more about SA2020 community safety partners, then give your time, talent, energy, or dollars to one (or more).
- To learn more about simple steps you can take, read some great advice from the National Crime Prevention Council.
- Here are some crime prevention tips from our very own SAPD, as well as some of their citizen participation programs.
- Connect with your City Councilmember if you have questions or concerns.
- Create neighborhood and community environments where people know and respect each other.
- Join a neighborhood watch program, such as Cellular On Patrol.
- Join or form neighborhood associations and build coalitions with local law enforcement to communicate the safety concerns of your neighborhood.
