Public Safety


All people, rich and poor, want to feel safe in the homes. Anne knows that not only do we need strong public safety actions, we need programs that help keep people from turning to crime in the first place. Anne will help the city to increase public safety by:

  • Supporting strong leadership in the Board of Public Safety and encouraging citizen engagement with it 
  • Continuing to support the Group Violence Intervention Strategy, a community intervention strategy that engages violent criminals and helps them to rebuild their lives.
  • Continuing the Light Up South Bend Program and the installation of new streetlights that will make our neighborhoods safer
  • Developing new programs for youth engaged in, or at risk of, criminal activity.
