Public Safety Taskforce

Englewood is a community where neighbors respect, trust and forgive each other in building shared accountability for a peaceful and safe environment. The perception of Englewood is not reflective of the positive efforts made by many residents and organizations to create a safe environment. We want to reduce negative activities that threaten our livelihood and increase positive activities that support healthy and peaceful living. We desire to create safe spaces for families in a community where peace and unity is promoted.

Outcomes:

1. Reduce youth arrests by 20%.

2. Increase opportunities for restorative justice, peace, and counseling, and increase participation in the community.

3. Increase alternatives for the most at-risk youth and secure their participation via a collaborative of outreach efforts.
