The foundation for sustained community growth.
Regardless of socio-economic factors, every community faces public safety concerns. They manifest in a variety of ways and can cast a web of damaging, harmful and even devastating effects on undeserving communities. At the center of any given community’s public safety considerations is quality of life. The spectrum of issues includes a broad range of matters. From nuisance issues such as noise, littering, graffiti, loitering and unruly behavior to larger problems such as trespassing, unauthorized living, dangerous driving, public intoxication and domestic violence, to complex problems involving burglary, narcotics, gangs and violent criminal activity, every community has its unique set of public safety problems.
Traditional public safety organizations such as law enforcement, EMS and fire departments are reactive in nature and can only do so much. CIS’ Public Safety Program is a coordinated effort between CIS and the community that is designed to proactively affect environmental change, enhance public safety and boost the internal vitality of the community. Our program is the first private sector-led public safety program of its kind in the nation. And it works.
CIS’ proven Public Safety Program is designed to meet the specific needs of any community. Our community assessments are focused on the specific community in need and the strategies we implement can scale up or down depending on the problems inherent in that community. The end result, though, is always the same – a connected, more protected community.
Engaging our methodology, The Community and Character Based Protection Initiative (CCBPI), CIS Public Safety Officers build relationships with residents to establish trust, organization and connectedness within the community to deprive criminals of the fear and disorder they thrive upon. The disorganized and disconnected environment leads to victimization, and victimization interferes with the strength of a community’s fiber, its networks and, ultimately, the social capital investment by its people so essential to its flourishing.
The Public Safety Program objectives include strategies that work to:
Augmenting the Public Safety Program are CIS services that may include:
CIS Public Safety Officers travel within the community both on foot and in public safety vehicles and conduct CCBPI to get to know community members, get them connected and educate them about the program and the crime prevention tools we use. More exactly, CCBPI works to identify and neutralize influences within the community that deteriorate its fiber (its connectedness) and social capital (its investment in itself). CCBPI strategies target visible criminal activity, nuisance problems and quality of life issues and clear the way for active development and reinforcement of community cohesion. Over time, the community as a whole will benefit because, as CIS’ Public Safety Program has proven, a connected community is a protected community.
