Safe Summer Initiative

Contact us

Our office partners with local law enforcement, city departments and community organizations on responsive strategies to prevent crime and engage youth in positive, pro-social activities in their neighborhoods. We collaborate with Saint Paul Police to analyze crime and dedicate resources in areas that need it most. Key elements of these collaborative efforts include:

  • Proactively engaging residents.
  • Promoting youth leadership through the Eastside Gamechangers Youth Council.
  • Organizing pro-social activities for the community. 
  • Enhancing curfew enforcement to keep kids safe and out of trouble.
  • Holding kids accountable with swift and sure consequences for serious offenses.
  • Providing diversion opportunities for kids to learn from their mistakes and make up for the harm they caused.
  • Surveying residents to gather information on how they feel about their neighborhood.
