Your one-stop shop for reducing violence through evidence-based policing
Over the past two decades, violent crime has been steadily declining. Yet the impact of homicide and violent crime remains a significant challenge for our nation's communities. With long-term social implications and staggering economic consequences, homicide and violent crime reduction remains the top priority for policing agencies throughout the nation. The challenge for many agencies is addressing violent crime with interventions and countermeasures that are demonstrated to be effective. To address this challenge, VCPI partnered with the United States Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services to develop Applied Evidence-Based Policing Practices: Homicide and Violent Crime Reduction (HVR), a multi-faceted program which provides classroom training, online training, and a multitude of resources for police managers and decision makers. Based on the fundamental premise that research and evidence should guide organizational decision making, our goal for the HVR program is to increase your knowledge of current evidence-based practices and ways to implement them into your agency’s homicide and violent crime reduction efforts.
