Community safety as a council priority

 
The Community Safety Council Committee develops this area's priorities by supporting initiatives that keep the city’s neighborhoods and business corridors safe, enhancing the perception of safety within the community, and supporting development of a workforce that is reflective of the community it serves.  
 
Initiatives are designed to decrease crime through enforcement and prevention strategies that target specific crime categories or offenders as well as reduce the incidence of property crime and vehicle crashes. The committee also ensures that the community is well-served in the areas of fire prevention, suppression and emergency response capabilities.

Members of the committee are appointed by the Mayor of Charlotte. The community safety initiatives under the auspices of the committee are designed to enable residents and visitors to engage with and have confidence in the city’s public safety agencies.
