Community Safety Initiative

Building Safe Neighborhoods


The Community Safety Initiative (CSI) is a key part of LISC Rhode Island’s strategic approach to building strong neighborhoods and healthy communities. LISC’s CSI program promotes public safety by creating strong alliances between the community and law enforcement. Local police work together with residents to assess neighborhood problems and craft responses. These joint efforts reduce crime and spur revitalization in many Rhode Island neighborhoods.

The success of LISC’s Community Safety Initiative has provided hope for Rhode Island communities, and a model for the nation. Read more about our approach HERE.
