Description

THE SAFETY LAB
The Safety Lab was developed with private sector operating principles, and a non-profit imperative, to develop new, effective solutions to violence in high-risk environments.

Mission
The Safety Lab creates new and innovative solutions to violence using new and complex research, technology, programming, and practices.  Through the leverage of resources and design, we seek a safer life for those living with high levels of violence and crime

Vision
The Safety Lab seeks to help create nations, regions, and cities that intentionally develop in a manner limiting violent crime through the management and reduction of inequality and systemic disadvantage.

OUR PRINCIPLES

Quality
Refusing the soft bigotry of lowered expectations for services to low-income communities. All our programs, projects, and products are created to be locally and globally competitive.

Innovation
All things must be ‘different from the norm’ or new. If someone or another agency in the space can deliver the project, they should. We take well developed ideas and apply them to new circumstances to create opportunities and safety.

Praxis
Neither research, nor action is good enough; both must be applied in a 3 dimensional sense to all projects - research is no good without action, and action must be researched, measured, analyzed, deconstructed, and rehabilitated.
