Rural Violent Crime Reduction Initiative Rural Roundtable III: Data Driven Strategies to Address Violent Crime
Publication Date: July 2023
The Rural Violent Crime Reduction Initiative (RVCRI) provides resources to rural and tribal jurisdictions seeking to address specific crime problems. RVCRI-funded sites utilize a multi-disciplinary team to identify and prioritize crime challenges and specific places and populations to direct grant resources. While unique to each site, crime reduction approaches include a mix of evidence-based and evidence-informed strategies. This session, part of an ongoing peer networking series, began with a presentation by National Policing Institute staff on data driven strategies to address violent crime. The second portion of the event included brief project descriptions and updates by a select number of RVCRI grantees, providing the opportunity for peer engagement and discussion.
