What Makes Great Neighborhoods?

Great neighborhoods are not great by coincidence.

They are great because they are safe and they offer opportunities for creativity, diversity and mobility.

Mostly, neighborhoods become great because people there care for one another and participate in community life.

SafeGrowth®

SafeGrowth® is a people-based planning method for creating 21st Century neighborhoods of imagination, livability, and safety. It develops new relationships between city government and residents in order to prevent crime and plan for the future. While technology and evidence-based practice plays a role, SafeGrowth® is based on community building through annual SafeGrowth® plans and neighborhood problem-solving teams networked throughout the city.

CRIME PREVENTION SCIENCE

AlterNation uses new crime prevention and crime analysis methods, sometimes called crime science. These methods help organizations like police, community groups, urban designers, and companies seeking safer places. Our clients establish high functioning, problem-solving teams and create learning organizations.

Our services include evidence-based planning, crime analysis and mapping, and our GPS-enabled, digitized observation mapping software for tracking fears and perceptions.  We deliver 1st and 2nd Generation CPTED and we teach neighborhoods how to conduct safety audits.
