City of Boston: Framework for Safe Neighborhoods and Innovative Partnerships
1 January 2017
The Office of Public Safety was created with the mandate of establishing cross agency and cabinet coordination to tackle these challenging and complex problems in our neighborhoods that lead to and perpetuate violence. Recognizing that our challenges cannot be viewed through an enforcement perspective alone and meaningful employment, proper outreach and prevention/intervention efforts are crucial to improve the quality of life for our residents. The Mayor believes that our partnerships are crucial to those solutions, solutions that lead to lasting change in our neighborhoods. Solutions that seek out and address the root cause of violence and lead to generational change and opportunity.
