Public Safety

The SANDAG Public Safety program combines regional public safety policy with state-of-the-art technology and research capabilities.

Our program is supported by two key components: the Automated Regional Justice Information System and the Criminal Justice Research Division. These divisions support the Public Safety Committee which advises the Board of Directors on major policy-level matters related to public safety.
