Goal: Safe Neighborhoods

Objective: Reduce Homicides & Shootings

Strategy: Identify where most of the violent crime occurs and focus resources accordingly

The Plan
The plan which Mayor Quan and Chief Jordan will unveil today was developed over the last several months with input at the city-wide town hall meetings and meetings with community groups. Focus groups were also conducted with exoffenders, probation youth, neighborhood residents, and NCPC leaders. Both historical and current data was compiled on the locations of homicides and shootings. Several cities with similar demographics were consulted regarding their violence prevention plan, and best practices were considered. Lastly, due to the Citys budget restrictions, ongoing cost and capacity were also taken into consideration.

DESCRIPTION Goal: Safe Neighborhoods Objective: Reduce Homicides & Shootings Strategy: Identify where most of the violence crime occurs and focus resources accordingly

The Neighborhood Safety Plan is focused on six neighborhoods throughout the City that currently and historically have had the highest incidence of shootings and homicides. All of these areas straddle major thoroughfares and are often plagued with prostitution, high rates of poverty, economically depressed commercial corridors, and numerous open air drug markets. These 100 blocks are mostly located in East and West Oakland and account for more than 90% of shootings and homicides city-wide. Within these blocks comprehensive, enforcement, intervention and prevention tactics will be used to reduce the high incidence of shootings and homicides. For each enforcement, intervention, and prevention tactic there are short-term, midterm, and long-term approaches. The District Attorneys Office, School District, Probation Department, Oakland Housing Authority, Measure Y Providers, and our federal and state partners will coordinate with the City of Oakland and focus their efforts in these geographic areas, designated Priority Service Areas (PSA) with the common goal of creating safe neighborhoods. By focusing on small geographic areas we can develop a knowledge based that will allow intelligence led enforcement to play a key role. This allows us to focus on problem behavior and repeat offenders with narrowly tailored approaches rather than blanket policies focused on demographic characteristics. In order to build trust in the communities where concentrated enforcement actions are occurring, particularly in light of historic tensions between law enforcement and some members of these communities, Code 33 and other training programs will be implemented. Additionally, in order to ensure the continued diversity of the Department much needed changes will also be made to the cadet and recruitment process. Lastly, officers assigned to these areas will frequently walk the streets, ensure that youth get to and from area schools safely, and participate in community events to help further positive relationship building. These efforts will be combined with the District Attorneys Strike Team who will focus on prosecuting Oaklands most violent offenders. Additionally, through the leadership of Alameda County Probation Department violent, high-risk offenders will be tracked and information will be shared across departments. Oakland Street Outreach has been one the highest performing strategies that the City has invested in. Building upon that success, street outreach workers will now be assigned to these PSAs where they will spend 80% of their time connecting with young people, their families, creating truces between rival groups, and performing immediate scene and hospital response to shooting victims. High risk youth likely (or who have already) engaged in violent behavior and their families will be identified and receive wraparound services through Measure Y service providers. Street Outreach workers will help to identify youth and young adults in these areas who will receive job training and employment. Due to the history of violence in these areas we realize that changing these norms will require a long-term investment which includes full service community schools, restorative justice in neighborhood schools, mentoring, messaging campaigns, neighborhood organizing, parental assistance/support, job training and employment for residents, neighborhood beautification, and participation from city departments in their respective fields (i.e. Parks & Recreation, Library Services, Public Works Agency, Oakland Fire Department, etc.). The Neighborhood Safety plan is developed and built on the belief that given limited resources, the city and its partners must work smarter in a coordinated matter, using data, and accountability to measure effectiveness to address our top priorityprotecting the safety and well-being of our most precious resource our children. The coordination and accountability of these elements will be measured and facilitated through the Mayors Office and City Administrators Office working collaboratively with our community, city, county, state, and federal partners. Although homicides in Oakland declined for five consecutive years until this year, the number of people getting killed and shot remains unacceptable. These violent acts not only destroy the lives of those immediately impacted, but they have a ripple effect that negatively impacts neighborhoods, communities, and the citys economic prospects. As violent crime rates increase, housing values decrease and taxes increase to meet the increasing strain on police and social services. Additionally, when cities develop a negative reputation due to violent crime and drug abuse, businesses are less willing to invest in Oakland As a result, Oakland residents have to drive to other cities to enjoy basic amenities, and local jobs are unavailable to residents. Thus, what happens in these areas impacts all Oakland residents and defines Oakland to outsiders. The point is this we rise and fall together. The violence and crime that has historically been isolated to certain parts of the City impacts the reputation of the entire city. If we can concentrate our efforts in these neighborhoods where 90% of the shootings and homicides occur we all benefit.
