Safe streets are not just streets that are safe from traffic fatalities and crashes. In order for a community to be walkable, all community members must feel safe and encouraged to be physically active throughout the neighborhood. Law enforcement can be critical partners in creating and promoting safe communities.
Moderator: Rosemary Agostini, Founder and Past Chief Activity, Sports and Exercise Medicine
