With support from The California Wellness Foundation, Prevention Institute developed and articulated a Safety in All Policies framework and actionable recommendations to advance community safety and violence prevention in California through a multi-sector public health approach. This work builds on the growing base of research and practice evidence and growing attention to Health in All Policies.
Safety in All Policies: A Brief to Advance Multi-Sector Actions for a Safer California lays out the core elements of a Safety in All Policies approach. Designed as a roadmap for State governmental entities to assist them in promoting policies, practices and actions in support of safe communities, the brief describes four areas of coordinated action that are needed at the State level. The brief also offers preliminary recommendations for action for a select number of California agencies and departments, including California Department of Parks and Recreation, California Department of Health and Human Services, California State Transportation Agency, California Department of Justice, California Attorney General's Office, and California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.
Safety in All Policies: A Brief on Engaging the Education Sector in Preventing Violence in California focuses on the education sector and describes eight recommended actions at the local level and potential roles for the California Department of Education and the California State Legislature in support of these local efforts.
Safety in All Policies: A Brief on Engaging the Housing and Community Development Sector in Preventing Violence in California focuses on the housing and community development sector and describes seven recommended actions at the local level and potential roles for the California Business, Consumer Services, and Housing Agency and the California State Legislature in support of local efforts.
