As part of FTA-mandated Agency Safety Plan (ASP) regulations 49 CFR 673, CATS needs to conduct an agency wide safety survey to all its employees to provide a baseline safety culture. This baseline will allow CATS to identify GAPS in the ASP and enhance the document to ensure safety issues and programs identified by employees are included. It is our intent to conduct future pulse check surveys in order to track changes in the safety culture over time.
In 2019, more than 100 homicides occurred in Charlotte — an 80 percent increase over the previous year and the city’s highest number of homicides since the early 1990s — and hospital emergency departments treated more than 4,000 Mecklenburg County residents for assault-related injuries.
In response to the increase in violence, the City, County and partners have adopted a new public health approach to prevent violent crime.
To help address this problem, the Office of Equity, Mobility and Immigrant Integration seeks one community organization to act as the Lead Agency and implement Cure Violence Global’s violence interruption model in the priority geography of Beatties Ford Rd and Lasalle St.
The city is seeking services to apply a behavioral science approach to the city’s officer recruitment process and residency incentives. The service provider should have experience applying behavioral science in the public safety, specifically the law enforcement sector and demonstrated impact. This work will address Recommendation 6 – Recruitment and Residency, as adopted in the SAFE Charlotte report by Charlotte City Council on October 26, 2020.
The City of Charlotte aims to improve neighborhood quality of life through a community engagement strategy that ensures children are safe, succeeding in school and supported by their community. An integral component to achieving this goal is providing funding to organizations that deliver high-quality out of school time services to children and youth in high-need neighborhoods.
Since 1978, the City has provided funding to agencies that offer Out of School Time (OST) enrichment programs to Students from low-income families. The programs can be provided at either neighborhood facilities or school facilities. This RFP is to solicit Organizations that provide these Services and evaluate their programs for potential City funding.
