How CBCR Works
In many communities, the same locations – a set of blocks or perhaps a few discrete intersections – have posed major crime problems for years, unyielding to traditional methods of law enforcement or other efforts to interrupt crime patterns.
CBCR provides resources to enable leaders in those communities to closely examine the varied factors contributing to crime, to select appropriate response strategies based on evidence of what has worked elsewhere, and then to tap the resources of diverse partners as they implement those strategies.
These powerful themes run through all CBCR efforts:
Guidelines for CBCR planning and implementation, including a suggested process and milestones, are available here.
CBCR resources are supporting crime reduction efforts in urban and rural sites all over the country
CBCR sites are reducing crime and blight and improving community-police relations
