The SAFE communities program is operated by the National Safety Council whose mission and vision are:
The goal of the Safe Communities program is to:
Currently there are only three counties in the United States with the Safe Communities designation.
Who should be involved?
If that list looks familiar it is because that is the same involvement we have with SAFER Santa Rosa. The Real question is; Why would a community want to be a Safe Community?

What we need to do is expand and promote all the safety programs in our county. If you can add to this list, send an email SAFER Santa Rosa.
