Safe on Our Streets New Orleans (SOS NOLA) is working to unify and amplify the voices of New Orleans residents, neighborhood groups, and community organizations about crime prevention. One of the first things they’re doing is promoting a Neighborhood Level Crime Survey for #NOLA residents to share their experience with crime, law enforcement response, crime prevention resources, and perceptions of public safety here in town. It is a short (5 minute) survey of 17 questions.

Our entire city is endangered by out-of-control crime. For the past three months, a coalition led by the St. Charles Avenue Association and St. Claude Main Street has been working with a diverse group of neighborhood leaders and civic associations to amplify and unify our voices and to find real, creative and effective solutions.
To date, more than 50 neighborhood associations and civic organizations have participated in our meetings, all focused on tapping into the concerns of citizens and to seek solutions to the crime problems that grip our city. After surveying our neighborhoods citywide and listening to the leaders, we are mobilized.
Our committed organization, S.O.S., (“Safe on Our Streets”) welcomes all neighborhoods to join the effort to make the outrage heard and solutions known. Neighborhood and civic organizations can join by emailing [email protected]. We need and want your energy and desire to make every New Orleanian safe on our streets.
The survival of this great city depends on solving this heinous problem. By speaking with one united voice, City Hall and others will hear our distress call — S.O.S — and make crime the No. 1 priority.
