The Victory Neighborhood enjoys a low crime rate in large part due to the interconnectedness of neighbors. ViNA works to support a strong network of block clubs which are encouraged to host regular block gatherings, maintain block contact lists, and welcome new residents. Block clubs result in neighbors being able to look out for one another better.
ViNA also offers home security improvement rebates. The organization will reimburse residents 50% of their costs (up to $500) for home security improvements. To receive the rebate, residents must first attend one of ViNA’s home security workshops or complete a home security assessment with the Minneapolis Police Department.
ViNA’s safety activities are primarily overseen by its Livability Committee. The committee meets the second Tuesday of most months at 6pm at the ViNA office. New members are welcome at any time.
