Office of Neighborhood Safety
The Office of Neighborhood Safety (ONS) brings together residents, community stakeholders and County representatives to solve public safety and quality of life issues by engaging directly with historically disenfranchised communities to ensure they help to guide decision-making and deliver innovative solutions.
ONS aims to address gun violence, revitalize public spaces, improve community infrastructure and minimize the need for residents to interact with the justice system. Our work spans five impact areas: Prevention, Intervention, Reentry, Economic Investment and Community Revitalization.
