WELCOME TO STARK COUNTY SAFE COMMUNITIES
Every year hundreds of citizens in every community are injured due to traffic crashes. Traffic crash injuries are the most overlooked public health problems today, but we are working to change that. Safe Communities is a community based program designed to create awareness and prevention of injuries caused by traffic crashes. Safe Communities is comprised of many community minded local businesses, organizations, agencies, and the public. It is funded by the Ohio Department of Public Safety and the Ohio Traffic Safety Office and is run by the Stark County Sheriff's Office.
The Safe Communities approach represents a new way community programs are established and managed. All partners participate as equals in developing solutions, sharing successes, assuming risks, and building a community structure and process to continue improvement of community life through the reduction of injuries and costs.
The Safe Communities approach provides exciting opportunities for transportation safety programs, as well as many payoffs for safety and injury control advocates as we move forward and focus on reducing injuries and saving health care costs. Safe Communities is a unique approach to transportation safety advocacy and motor vehicle injury control. The objective of Stark County Safe Communities is to promote community-based solutions to address transportation safety and other injury problems.
