why TV public safety games?

1. because tv is the best way to reach the

most chicagoans at a SCHEDULED time

2. because TV GAMES GENERATE LARGE, LOYAL AUDIENCES

that profit the tv stations that host them.

2. BECAUSE DIGITAL AGE public safety in cities like

chicago HAS BECOME A GAME OF LIFE AND DEATH.

3. BECAUSE THIS GAME IS WINNABLE ONLY WHEN THE

ENTIRE COMMUNITY TEAMS UP TO WIN IT.

5. aND BECAUSE THE GAME OF PUBLIC safety ultimately FEEDS INTO the GREAT GAME OF VOTER-DRIVEN DEMOCRACY.

SO THAT'S WHY WHEN IT COMES

TO PUBLIC SAFETY, WE SAY

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Years ago, safety was a game for some Chicagoans.

For Chicagoans living in poor, nonwhite neighborhoods.

Today it's a game ALL Chicagoans becauser violence is citywide.

And it's become a game for ALL Americans as well.

Because violence is nationwide.

Here we focus on Chicago.

What works in Chicago can work in

other cities.  And nationwide.

There's just one way to WIN the safety game.

Play as a team. Of citizens, police, leaders and City Hall. 

On a level playing field. Rule-governed. Transparent. Inclusive.

Play to earn the respect of all 2.6 million Chicagoans.

Play the game in Chicago's neighborhoods. And, on the field of

Chicago's Digital Age public communications system

SAFETY IS a digital age game.

media-basedfor four reasons:

IT'S A GAME_edited.jpg

  • Youth ViolenceChicago's Industrial Age game of cops and ADULT robbers has evolved to a Digital Age game of YOUTH violence whose resolution requires the citywide involvement that can be generated only in Chicago's Digital Age media.

  • Law Enforcement For decades Chicago's mayors and police have pleaded with Chicagoans for help in addressing the violence of the city's heavily armed, drug-dealing, youth-victimizing street gangs. Chicago's Community Alternative Policing Strategy (CAPS) has yet to realize its potential for lack of a proper home base, used by all Chicagoans, in Chicago's media.

  • Citywide Ownership of Digital Devices.  The Digital Age power to make Chicago either safe or violent is now distributed citywide through the digital devices now by virtually all Chicagoans.

  • The Unifying and Trustworthy Power of TV SportsChicagoans take pride in the trustworthy telecasts of the championship drives of Chicago's beloved pro sports teams. We propose using this power to unify all Chicagoans in Chicago's ongoing drive, both contested and collaborative, to realize the universally desired goal of Citywide Safety.

we design ccm programs and Formats to

  • Give all Chicagoans an informed and ongoing voice in the government decisions that affect their lives

  • Make Chicagoans and City Hall responsive and accountable to each other in making Chicago a safe place to visit, work, play, worship and raise a family.

  • Be scalable: to work at local, state, national and even international levels

  • To restore lost trust in political discourse and functionality to government

  • Are issue-centered and non-partisan, non ideological, dialogic and rule-governed.

  • Are intended to depolarize hyper-polarized, election-centered political discourse. In Chicago, for instance, they make it possible for polarized groups like Black Lives Matter and the Fraternal Order of Police to communicate productively.
