Public Safety


The NABB Public Safety Committee is committed to preventing crime in the Back Bay by promoting personal safety and a crime-free neighborhood. The committee will serve as a liaison for information between law enforcement and the Back Bay community and build a network to disseminate information concerning current criminal activity and specific actions the community and individuals can take to avoid becoming victims of a crime.


The committee disseminates information such as: crime prevention (City of Boston crime prevention support), and reporting tips, crime trends, including special occurrences or areas of concern, and educational opportunities related to crime prevention and public safety.

In working with law enforcement, we communicate areas of community concern and priorities concerning criminal activity, and try to influence resource allocation to respond to these concerns.


The Public Safety Forum meets in the Sanctuary of the First Church in Boston, 66 Marlborough Street, at 6:00 pm on the last Thursday of every month. All are welcome to attend and provide input into public safety issues in the Back Bay.
