The Public Safety Committee of the Board of Aldermen is seeking proposals to provide crime prevention programs within the city of St. Louis.
The Committee is seeking proposals from qualified not-for-profit organizations to serve youth at risk, targeting male and female youth between the ages of 11 and 18. For the purposes of this RFP, crime prevention programs are defined as those programs that, either on an individual or group level, work to instill the self-discipline, self-control and self-worth necessary to reduce the likelihood of involvement in criminal activity.
The City is seeking proposals that utilize a community-based approach to create an environment that prevents or deters all forms of crime, but specifically appreciates those proposals which focus on reducing murder, assault and gang activity. Respondents to the RFP must present proposals that expand or sustain existing programs or create new programs that will impact the designated population.
