Our City, Our Safety Block Club Portal

In the coming months, the City’s Community Safety Coordination Center will be launching various efforts to ensure that residents have access to the tools needed to protect their homes and blocks. Our City, Our Safety Block Club Portal will be a place for block clubs, neighborhood associations, faith- and community-based organizations working together to reduce violence. Block clubs and other organizations are encouraged to register and use this portal to:

  • Request protection resources, such as outdoor security cameras and motion-sensor lighting
  • Request resources needed for relation building and block revitalization, such as vegetation and home improvement tools
  • Stay informed on current data and City efforts to reduce violence
  • Uplift and support partnering organizations
  • Take part in community-led awareness campaigns and initiatives
