“ To increase safety and vibrancy by building mutually beneficial relationships for all stakeholders, businesses, public safety agencies, and residents.”
Founded in 2018, Safe Night LLC is a consulting firm that provides solutions to increase trust, safety, and economic viability for municipalities. We teach the Proactive Alliance relationship-based policing approach, which uses adapted concepts from counseling psychology. This collaborative approach is a prevention model based on building relationships with the community in a variety of settings, using the humanity of the individual police officer as his or her most valuable instrument.
In addition, we show how the multi-disciplinary approach is the most effective method for achieving long-term outcomes to chronic issues that need continual management.
Safe Night works with police departments, local and state enforcement agencies, economic development, business improvement districts, private businesses, community groups, and public/private partnerships to improve the safety and vibrancy of their community. We have years of experience in law enforcement, public policy, and social services which can greatly influence your community for the better.
"During my tenure as chief of the Arlington County Police Department, we used a relationship-based approach developed by Molly Mastoras, MA, LPC and implemented by Master Police Officer (Ret.) Dimitrios Mastoras as the foundation for the nationally recognized Arlington Restaurant Initiative (ARI). This methodology developed into the Proactive Alliance relationship-based approach. This approach helped officers and county staff learn how to develop individual relationships and build trust with the community and businesses. ARI is a multi-agency, voluntary accreditation model to improve Arlington's nightlife areas' safety and economic viability. I would strongly recommend Proactive Alliance relationship-based policing to any agency looking to improve trust and collaboration among stakeholders to address long-standing issues in their community."
