Violence Prevention

We work to create and maintain safe, healthy, and thriving communities. The Office of Violence Prevention (OVP) uses a community-focused, public health approach to help ensure that everyone can be free from violence. We work to break the cycle of violence by addressing it at three points: preventing it before it begins, intervening at the first sign of risk, and healing after it happens.

Transforming Community Safety Survey

Minneapolis Community: Please complete our Transforming Community Safety Survey to provide your input on a new model of community safety.

The purpose of this survey is for members of the Minneapolis community to identify what safety looks like, and to provide ideas for how a new model can be accomplished. Results from this survey will be used to help create recommendations for elected leaders. This will also be used to help guide our next steps in our community engagement.

Survey available in multiple languages
