The Community Safety Partnership represents a team strategy designed to deal with complex community problems that cannot be resolved through traditional law enforcement practices alone. Our commitment to establishing partnerships is rooted in our belief that the police cannot solve public safety problems alone, but rather the police and the community must work together as partners, through collaboration and coordination, to address the dynamic public safety challenges in the communities we serve.
This spirit of collaboration, of shared responsibility, and of mutual respect and understanding is no more important than in our current time and it must begin with open, cooperative discussions between community members and police officers to help resolve or improve the conditions that contribute to violence and its resulting trauma. Thus, tackling complex public safety problems requires strategic partners to assist in the development and delivery of comprehensive solutions.
Through the development of partnerships, traditional law enforcement strategies are linked with prevention, intervention, and community-building investment strategies. The strategies employed are based on a collaborative approach to identifying shared values that ultimately improve safety and support our fundamental duty to prevent and deter crime. As such, police officers, residents, community stakeholders, and City partners counter long-standing and emerging public safety-related threats with courage, wisdom, compassion, and a commitment to teamwork. Through this process, community capacity is enhanced, and community leadership is revealed, which enables community voice and strengthens resiliency.
