The Coalition for a Safe Community started in 2010 with a concerned group of citizens, public officers, law enforcement agencies, faith-based and other organizations determined to take action to combat crime and violence.
It's been eight years since the inception of the Atlantic County Coalition for a Safe Community. Although what seems like a very short period of time, we are now in four communities: Atlantic City, Pleasantville, Galloway, and Egg Harbor City.
Coming together is a Beginning | Keeping together is Progress | Working together is Success
Most recently, we held our 2 nd Annual Teen Summit at Stockton University. It was a very successful event, with over 200 students in attendance from 10 area high schools.
Another ongoing initiative is our Community Walks, which have been so successful in Atlantic City that we have expanded our collaboration to also include agencies providing educational information to community residents.
