Excerpt
Foreword: Increasing numbers of people no longer view the safety of their neighborhoods as the sole responsibility of the police.

Developing and sustaining these partnerships requires strong local leadership from mayors, city managers, city planners, and other elected local officials. This monograph was prepared to help create that leadership by chronicling how local public officials have used community safety partnerships to build healthier communities.
