Community Safety Partnership (CSP)

The Housing Authority's Community Safety Partnership (CSP) with the Los Angeles Police Department is an unprecedented program aimed at improving the relationship between  the residents of Los Angeles public housing communities and the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD).

The Housing Authority signed a Memorandum of Agreement with LAPD to place 45 permanent police officers at four public housing communities (Nickerson Gardens, Imperial Courts, Jordan Downs, and Ramona Gardens). This is an opportunity for officers to work side by side with residents and community members to develop and implement sustainable programs, eradicate crime, address quality of life issues all while simultaneously bridging the gap between the community and the LAPD.


CSP Officers become integrated into the community they serve and residents become active participants in the identification and prevention of crime. Community policing promotes better communication and understanding. The residents and officers are partners resulting in more effective policing.
