Safe Communities

Greene County Safe Communities Coalition works to prevent injury through community action by addressing safety issues through initiatives involving engineering, enforcement and education. The coalition is funded in part by the U.S. Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Administration through a grant from Ohio Department of Public Safety and the Governor’s Highway Safety Office.

The Ohio Department of Traffic Safety introduced the Safe Communities program to help:
• Decrease traffic injuries
• Increase safety awareness
• Decrease the amount of money spent on traffic-related injuries
• Increase the number of people involved in keeping communities safe

The coalition is made up of a number of organizations from across Greene County and are always looking for new members.
