We are delighted at Usalama Forum to enter a new phase in our development as an institution. After years of investment, we have evolved to become a leading Kenyan based research and innovation agency in the field of community safety and security. Since inception, our partnerships have grown tremendously at community, national and international levels. We have also established presence in twelve counties across Kenya where we work with communities and government agencies on innovative ways of building safety and security.Through this website, we share with you stories of how our partner communities are getting involved in reducing and eventually preventing local crime, violence and disorder problems across Kenya.  We also share with you how these community experiences are growing into models for possible replication and evidence base for policy work on community safety and security.

Usalama Forum is a Kenyan based Public Safety Research and Innovation Organization founded as a Police Reforms lobby in 2008 with the mandate of consolidating civil society engagement in the security sector reforms programs in the country.
