Mission

Citizens For a Safer San Leandro is dedicated to empowering the community to work together to prevent crime, resolve issues and participate in disaster preparedness training through enhanced communication, neighborhood associations, the San Leandro Police Department, the Alameda County Fire Department, public agencies and the City of San Leandro.

Neighborhood Watch

One of the charter purposes of Citizens for a Safer San Leandro (CSSL) is the reinvigoration of the Neighborhood Watch program.

In cooperation with the San Leandro Police Department, CSSL aims to encourage San Leandro residents to establish new Neigborhood Watches and provide resources to help Block Captains to be successful.
