Safe Neighborhood Program

The Safe Neighborhood Program is a crime prevention initiative designed to help neighborhoods in Escambia County address issues that are causing a decline in physical quality, social quality and general livability. The program works with residents to take control of their neighborhoods and reduce crime and blight in designated areas.

There are 11 safe neighborhood designations:

  • Avondale Neighborhood
  • Crescent Lake Neighborhood
  • Atwood/Northcross Neighborhood
  • Montclair Neighborhood
  • Mayfair Neighborhood
  • Carriage Hills Neighborhood
  • Myrtle Grove Neighborhood
  • Cantonment Neighborhood
  • Lincoln Park Neighborhood
  • Wedgewood Neighborhood
  • Westernmark Neighborhood

Participation in the Safe Neighborhood Program gives the citizens an opportunity to draft their own plan to initiate improvements they feel their own neighborhood needs.
