Violence Intervention and Prevention

This program reduces violence by establishing strong presence in communities with high levels of violence.

Community Engagement and Communications

The ONSE Community Outreach team organizes community events in priority neighborhoods to build community, promote resources and share helpful information to make communities safer.

Pathways Program

This initiative aims to decrease criminal justice involvement and improve the outcomes of those most likely to be the victim or perpetrator of a violent crime. Learn more about the program here.

ONSE Mission

Our mission is to foster community based strategies to help prevent violence and increase public safety. Our strategy is rooted in a public health approach to violence prevention, recognizing that reducing crime is not accomplished through law enforcement alone.
