Hayward Safe

Community Conversations on Safety and Law Enforcement in Hayward

In Hayward, we strive to be a community where everyone feels safe and supported, regardless of race or background.

We know achieving that vision takes continuous listening, learning, and improvement. Fall of 2020, staff partnered with students and faculty at Chabot College to conduct one-on-one interviews with community members. Through these conversations we heard from over 750 community members. You can access results from these conversations here and also from the below map from 481 community members.

Data Sharing

As of October 25, we have heard from 754 community members. The map below shows the responses from the 481 community members who consented to have their data shared anonymously on the website. You can view responses by racial/ethnic categories, age categories, and gender. 

A few notes on this data:

  • The locations on the map are placed in the vicinity of a cross street or landmark close to the participant and are not a representation of the respondent's actual location.
  • Participants self-identified their race or ethnicity. For the purposes of this map, staff has combined categories to make it easier to read. The full self-identified list can be seen here.
  • Staff has attempted to remove and profanity or offensive language. 
  • If you have issues with this map, try viewing it in a different brower.
