Minneapolis SafeZone – Keeping Downtown Safe

In December of 2004, the Downtown Business Community approached City leadership to ask for increased coordination and effort in regard to Downtown Safety. As a result of this, the Minneapolis SafeZone Collaborative—Downtown was formed. The Collaborative was formed based on the premise that in Downtown Minneapolis, there are 13 private security officers for every law-enforcement officer and that with increased communication between these partners, crime can be decreased.

With this partnership engaged, while robbery went up elsewhere in Minneapolis, it went down 20% in the SafeZone. Auto theft in the SafeZone area also was down 14%.
