Public Safety Program

This program is provided to increase neighborhood safety with services that activate neighbors through civic engagement. Our goal is to help reduce calls for service to city departments while empowering residents to take the steps needed to feel safe and secure in their homes. Key components of this program include: free home security surveys, personal safety information, victim assistance, traffic safety planning, producing and distributing public safety-related information/e-alert notices and fliers. Block Club organizing keeps neighbors working together to prioritize problems, identify resources and develop and implement action plans to resolve problems. We achieve these goals by educating/informing residents while partnering with city departments and community organizations. This program is primarily funded by federal Community Development Block Grants that the City of Grand Rapids receives and then funds a myriad of community programs.
