What is Neighbors Together

What is Neighbors Together

Neighbors Together goes beyond the traditional “watch” model and empowers neighbors and community to collaborate on creative safety solutions.  

Our training supports neighbors to work with each other, with the City, and with community to better address a broad range of related public safety considerations such as active transportation, emergency preparedness, personal safety, community advocacy, and more.


How to Activate Neighbors Together

Step 1: Meet with your neighbors or community.

Step 2: Identify community safety interests.

Step 3: Connect with your Community Safety Coordinators for a training.

Step 4: Organize a meeting to create a plan that helps address safety related goals-include some effective ways to conduct a productive meeting.                                                                      

Step 5: Collaborate on safety efforts and access resources provided at the training.
