LAPD Behind the Scenes - Community Service Partnership
LAPDs Community Safety Partnership Program The Community Safety Partnership program (CSP) began in the Fall of 2011, and is a collaboration between the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA) and the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD). The mission of the program is to foster relationships with the residents in the Jordan Downs, Nickerson Gardens, Imperial Courts and Ramona Gardens housing communities. The ongoing focus is to start and support community and youth programs, address quality of life issues and develop programs to address and reduce violent crimes. All CSP personnel have been specifically trained and are required to: • Communicate with HACLA managers to address current or potential issues. • Attend community meetings • Identify quality of life issues • Participate in the Safe Passage program Some of the programs that have been implemented as a result of CSP are: • The Watts Bears Football Team (football teams comprised of kids ages 9-11 from all four housing developments) • First Girl Scout Troop (Ramona Gardens) • Camping trips coordinated through the Harold Robinson Foundation • Educational programs and scholarships to private schools • Sunburst Youth Academy, an alternative youth program rather than being arrested • CSP also provides referrals for recovery, social and mental health related programs
