Safe Communities Madison-Dane County coordinates county-wide, collaborative campaigns with organizations and individuals that have a significant interest and investment in safety. Police and fire departments, hospitals and health care organizations, neighborhood associations, faith communities, public health, elder- and youth-serving agencies, utilities and insurance companies – are all active partners in our coalition’s projects. We are committed to effective action: we evaluate our projects to assess their impacts, and employ evidence-based approaches wherever possible.
We estimate that since our inception in 1999, our work has directly improved the personal safety of more than 35,000 Dane County residents, most of them children and older adults.
Safe Communities builds partnerships with people and organizations to save lives, prevent injuries and make our community safer.
Safe Communities will be both the leader and primary catalyst in making Madison-Dane County the safest American community.
