    AmeriCorps Urban Safety Project

    The AmeriCorps Urban Safety Project (AMUS), operated by Wayne State University – Center for Urban Studies, is a unique Michigan’s AmeriCorps program funded through the Governors/Mayors Initiative. Through the service of 28 full-time and 4 part-time AmeriCorps members, the program strives to increase public safety and decrease victimization in Detroit’s Midtown/North End, East Jefferson, and three targeted neighborhoods in the southwest, northwest and northeast parts of the city. Each AMUS members participates in one or more of three sets of activities: crime mapping and analysis; improving neighborhood guardianship through community organizing; and reducing victim attractiveness and susceptibility through target hardening.

    Learn more about the AmeriCorps Urban Safety Project on pages 6 and 7 of "Service as a Strategy."
