|About Safe Takoma|
Safe Takoma is a cross-jurisdictional crime-prevention program focused on the commercial and residential areas surrounding Washington D.C.'s Takoma Metrorail station. It was organized by Safe Takoma Incorporated working in partnership with the city governments of the District of Columbia and Takoma Park, Maryland.
Safe Takoma has created a coalition of local, DC and Maryland residents, businesses, and community representatives. Safe Takoma and its partners are working to prevent crime and lessen the fear of crime. We promote improvement of cross-jurisdictional, inter-agency communications and cooperation. We work to raise resident and business awareness and to involve all Takoma residents, businesses, and community organizations in public-safety efforts. We develop programming to address neighborhood conditions that are often at the root of crime.
Safe Takoma Inc. is not-for-profit corporation run by a Board of Directors with the guidance of an Advisory Committee of community leaders. Safe Takoma is incorporated in Maryland and is registered as a foreign corporation in the District of Columbia. We have 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status and are funded by Washington DC and Takoma Park, Maryland grants.
