Campaign for

Real Public Safety


ReEnvision  ReInvest  ReBuild


STL currently employs

1185 officers 

and is the

11th highest policed

city in the US

“Arrest & Incarcerate” has been the response to crime for the last 30 years, leaving us with overflowing jails & prisons, lives and communities destroyed and with little to no increase in public safety. We need to rethink public safety in order to proactively address the root causes of crime. Re-Investing in Public Safety would redirect money from the arrest & incarcerate model to partnerships with social services.

If  you would like us to present to your neighborhood group, church group or social justice organization, please contact us at 314-332-1262.

Cure Violence
CAPCR is pushing to bring Cure Violence to St. Louis. This is an effective program to interrupt the spread of violence by viewing it as a public health issue. Cure Violence hires people from affected communities who mediate and deescalate disputes. They also hook youth up to job and education programs, and work with existing community networks to strengthen social bonds. Cure Violence does not work with police, thereby better building trust on the streets.
