Boston is one of the oldest cities in North America and one of the most liveable. To help you make the most of all that your city has to offer, you are invited to click on the following web links to helpful resources provided by the City, Commonwealth and your neighborhood's organizations.
BOS:311 is the City of Boston's award-winning effort to empower residents to be the City's "eyes and ears." You can alert the City of Boston to neighborhood issues such as potholes, damaged signs, and graffiti, to name a few.
You can help us create a safer neighborhood for everybody!
The Association works closely with local law enforcement agencies and your elected representatives to help keep our neighborhood a safer community for everyone to enjoy.
You are invited to help as well. If you see a crime or anti-social behavior such as human trafficking (prostitution), panhandling or illegal drug activity taking place, you should do any of the following to report it, anonymously.
You are also welcome to join the Public Safety Committee. This committee acts as a forum to support community partnerships to prevent crime and the fear of crime in the neighborhood. The committee focuses on neighborhood priority issues such as human trafficking (prostitution), panhandling, illegal drug activity, burglary, home invasion, car theft and other public safety concerns. The committee works with the Boston Police Department, Commonwealth of Massachusetts State Police and other law enforcement officials to problem solve, share information and address issues.
Sign up today and help us keep our neighborhood a safe place to live!
