Crime and Safety

The Crime and Safety Unit (CSU) was created in 1997 to create and sustain safe communities for residents in and around public housing.  The foundation of the CSU’s efforts is the comprehensive Housing Management Model that involves site management, residents and law enforcement working together. The CSU is responsible for implementing a variety of crime reduction programs for the the Los Angeles County Development Authority (LACDA).
