#24- Supporting Public Safety
Years Served: 
2019

All Americans deserve to have safe communities to call home. AmeriCorps and Senior Corps support initiatives that create safe routes for students traveling to and from school, perform community watch duties, mitigate blighted properties, support healthy afterschool activities, promote drug prevention programs, and combat elder abuse and fraud. Programs such as the Urban Safety Corps program in Detroit have developed techniques that build community pride, reduce policing costs, and created a template that is being replicated to improve other communities with similar challenges.
