Commitment to Public Safety
The City Council approved a budget of $2.8 million for the creation of a Department of Community Safety (CDCS) that will coordinate community driven solutions to enhance safety and wellness through key services and programs targeted at our most vulnerable populations. CDCS will oversee the Cambridge Alternative Response Program and other efforts to supplement Cambridge Public Safety agencies in making the community a safer place to live, work, and experience for all.
Young Adult Diversion Program Offers Alternative to Criminal Prosecution
Diversion allows a young person the opportunity to complete an individually-tailored program in lieu of prosecution and may include conditions such as educational programs, counseling, community service, working with housing, letters of apology, and restitution.
Expanding Advanced Life Support Services
Cambridge Fire Department (CFD) will hire eight firefighters in FY23 to expand the delivery of Advanced Life Support, (ALS) or Paramedic service, to the community.
