Our first priority:

Community Safety

We work with community members, officers, organizations, businesses, and institutions to ensure that our neighborhoods, our community, are the safest in all of Cleveland. Near West Safety believes that a safe community is one that is Prepared, Informed, Connected, and Knowledgeable.




About Near West Safety

Near West Safety is a collaboration between Tremont West Development and Ohio City Inc. to address community safety needs across the near west side neighborhoods of Tremont, Duck Island, Irishtown Bend, and Ohio City. Through partnerships with the Cleveland Police Department - Second District, The City of Cleveland, and many others, Near West Safety addresses the community safety concerns across the entire spectrum of safety. This includes both crime and quality of life safety issues. In addition to working with police and safety forces to address crime, Near West Safety also works with the City to identify blocked street signs, dangerous pot holes, and vacant buildings, among other issues. 

Near West Safety believes that the single greatest asset in building a safe neighborhood, a safe community, is an active and engaged community. This is the belief that guides the Near West Safety initiative in all our efforts. 


Near West Safety Staff

Near West Safety is staffed by Chad Biggers, Community Safety Organizer for both Ohio City Inc. and Tremont West Development. His position allows both organizations to advance neighborhood specific safety initiatives, as well as joint safety initiatives through the Near West Safety collaboration. Chad also works to strengthen communications with the Cleveland Police Department's Second District, neighbors, and stakeholders. Chad ensures that resident's needs are being heard and helps identify ways to meet those needs.
