All people deserve safety in their homes, workplaces, streets, schools, parks, and other neighborhood spaces, but our policies and spending decisions are not currently structured to maximize this goal. Advancing Community Safety is dedicated to advancing multi-disciplinary policies and investments that prevent violence and harm before they happen.
