In neighborhoods with persistent crime problems across the country, the Innovations in Community Based Crime Reduction (CBCR) Program brings together diverse partners including local law enforcement, researchers and residents to analyze crime drivers and pursue strategies that reduce crime, spur revitalization and build community-police collaboration.
Administered by the Department of Justice Bureau of Justice Assistance, CBCR is part of the “Innovations Suite” of programs that support partnerships between researchers and practitioners to develop data-driven and evidence-informed strategies that are effective and economical.
In addressing the drivers of crime in and around hot spots, CBCR partners are employing diverse crime prevention, intervention and neighborhood revitalization strategies.
