The Mayor’s Community Based Crime Reduction (CBCR) Program is federally funded by the U.S. Department of Justice. The program has three key goals: reduce crime, increase mutual trust between law enforcement and community stakeholders, and improve public safety in Mid-westside Jacksonville neighborhoods (Grand Park, New Town, Durkeeville and LaVilla).  Additionally, the Mayor’s Community Based Crime Reduction Program is committed to implementing initiatives that address economic and community development, education, housing, and health disparities in these neighborhoods. Visit our website to stay up-to-date on program activities as well as news, events, announcements and opportunities that impact crime and quality of life in our city.
