The Safer Newark Council is cross sector group with public safety as its core program. The Safer Newark Council has three main goals:
1. To provide an independent assessment of the current status of public safety in Newark and share with its citizens.
2. To identify and promote a set of strategic priorities for improving Newark’s public safety city-wide.
3. To create a medium for aligning evidence-based and problem-oriented public safety initiatives with these strategic priorities, making connections between the city’s current array of public and private public safety activity, and identifying gaps in that work.
