Innovations in Community Based Crime Reduction

What is CBCR?

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.

CBCR has supported crime reduction efforts in 74 urban and rural sites since 2012

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.
