More drug outreach programmes, audits of poorly kept streets and measures to tackle drug dealing hot spots, all form part of a new plan for the North Inner City.
The Local Community Safety Plan brings together a number of agencies in a bid to improve safety in the area.
Crime stats for minor assaults, robbery, drugs use and possession and possession of a firearm are all substantially higher in the north inner city than the national average, according to a report aiming to change that.
The Local Community Safety Plan brings together Gardaí, Tusla, the HSE, youth services and business groups to boost safety in the area.
Among the plans are audits of streets in the capital to improve lighting and cleanliness.
Dublin City Council also intends to review and renew commercial properties with O'Connell Street, Moore Street, Talbot Street and Capel Street getting priority.
Gardaí will also be targeted at hot spot areas for anti-social behaviour and drug use.
New programmes will be offered to young, repeat offenders and drug outreach programmes will be extended.
Groups will also be tasked with tackling illegal dumping.
The report contains 50 actions, with local groups hoping it can make a difference.
