Welcome to the United Neighborhood Councils of Oakland (UNCO) website!

Maxwell Park NCPC Freeway Clean-Up Sign

Oakland's Neighborhood Councils (NCs), also know as Neighborhood Crime Prevention Councils (NCPCs), are volunteer citizen groups organized around the City's 50-plus police beats. These groups were formed to give residents a voice in promoting quality-of-life improvements in their neighborhoods and also directing how community policing should be conducted in their areas. Anyone can join their local Neighborhood Council. It's a great way to get engaged in your community and help bring about positive changes!

UNCO is a citywide association of Oakland Neighborhood Councils, and is not affiliated with the City. This website is intended for everyone: from the person who has never heard of the Neighborhood Councils and wants to learn more to the experienced NCPC Chair looking for meeting best practices or beat-specific crime statistics. In addition to being a general resource on Neighborhood Councils, this website also includes UNCO's positions on how to build safer, and more vibrant, neighborhoods in Oakland.

Thank you for visiting!
