Street Safe

In 2007, the Boston Police Department created Safe Street Teams to foster police and community engagement on a more personal level. Originally piloted in three of Boston’s high-crime areas, there are now 13 teams spread throughout the City in these neighborhoods:

Egleston Square, South End/Lower Roxbury, Franklin Field, Eagle Hill/Maverick, Orchard Park/Dudley, Codman Square (C-11), Downtown Crossing (two Teams), Tremont & Stuart, Blue Hill Ave./Morton St., Bowdoin-Geneva, Grove Hall, Uphams Corner

Safe Street Teams have been invaluable in building trust with the community and reducing crime in Boston’s neighborhoods and it is the City’s goal to increase the number of Safe Street Teams in this upcoming year.
