The Chelsea Violence Prevention/Intervention Program provides outreach and supportive services on behalf of the Chelsea Police Department to newcomers and already existing immigrant and refugee communities. Officers connect with these populations via community networking and collaboration to help ensure that fear, misunderstanding, language and trauma are not barriers to accessing public safety and police services. The program establishes greater trust and understanding between the CPD and newcomer community. The Chelsea Police Department also provides public safety-related information and resources to newcomer families.
Partnerships with major community organizations (MGH, The Chelsea Collaborative, The Neighborhood Developers, Centro Latino) provide referrals and allow the Newcomer Program to connect with individuals who may otherwise not access police services.
