The Office of Community Safety and Engagement

The Office of Community Safety and Engagement identifies evidence-based approaches to improving public safety and reducing crime outside of the traditional law enforcement context.  MOCJ works to implement and ensure the success of such programs, either directly or in partnership with other agencies.  MOCJ staff work with members of the community to understand their experiences and needs as it relates to public safety.  Through this work, our agency strengthens the Pugh Administration’s relationship with community stakeholders and designs effective public safety initatives that are responsive to residents’ priorities.  This service houses Safe Streets, the Supervised Visitation Center, and manages the Youth Service Bureau contracts with the Family League.
