Community Capitals Policing 2022 Impact Report

What a difference a year makes!

DSAL and ACSO set out 17 years ago to design a new approach to public safety, called “Community Capitals Policing”. We recognized that traditional methods of policing weren’t sufficient to repair the deeply rooted challenges—poverty, unemployment, food insecurity, chronic disease, and mental and behavioral health—in Ashland, Cherryland, and other underserved, unincorporated Alameda County communities. Our systems-level approach focused on making investments in the seven community capitals (human, cultural, built, financial, natural, social, and political) that are necessary for a community to thrive.

Our “2022 Community Capitals Policing Impact Report” provides a summary of our efforts In 2022 to strengthen the community through a range of community-driven activities that are improving health, alleviating food insecurity, healing the environment, building economic opportunity, and creating new pathways for community members to succeed.

We are deeply grateful to the partners, funders, staff, and volunteers who joined us on this journey.
