The Central West End Neighborhood Security Initiative (NSI) was formed in 2007 to respond more efficiently to crime.

In that time, the initiative has excelled in bringing accountability to its supplemental bicycle patrols and has adopted the latest security tools and strategies. In addition to proactive crime prevention patrols and equipment, the NSI has taken advantage of effective communication with law enforcement and prosecution. NSI also works to educate and empower the Central West End Community.

 The NSI is made up of 3 full-time personnel and is sponsored by six Special Business Districts along with Washington University Medical Center.

The NSI works in cooperation with the Saint Louis Metropolitan Police Departnemt, supplemental security companies, residents, and business to unify prevention efforts and respond more efficiently to crime as a community.
