The Neighborhood Security Initiative was created in 2007 to serve the community with a comprehensive plan for security in the Central West End.

This program works closely with Saint Louis Metropolitan Police Department, supplemental security companies, the Central West End residents and businesses to unify prevention efforts and respond more efficiently to crime as a community.
