Crime and Safety
The Crime and Safety Committee focuses on issues related to the safety and well-being of Cleveland Residents. Some of the work of the Committee is to address the perceptions of crime versus the reality. The Committee also nurtures relationships between the residents and the Police Department and make residents aware of resources available to provide home security assessments.
Additionally, the Committee works with Regulatory Services and residents on the exterior appearances of homes. When Inspection Sweeps are set to occur, timely communication to residents is important so that they have the opportunity to be prepared for the inspection.
