The latest research on what works in crime prevention and community development highlight remarkably similar themes: Focus on specific places. Let residents lead the way. Use data to inform strategy.

Drawing on the Local Initiatives Support Corporation’s 20-year history of supporting community safety efforts, this session will explore how leaders in cities around Massachusetts have overcome barriers to create strong alliances between communities, police and other law enforcement agencies that yield sustained reductions in crime and improvements in quality of life.
