Community Based Crime Reduction : International District initiative views crime and violence as a serious public health issue that requires a holistic and community-driven response. The Community Based Crime Reduction initiative engages residents of the International District and involves stakeholders to learn about and join the crime reduction and community development action plans of the Community Based Crime Reduction Leadership Council and its different working groups.
Community Based Crime Reduction: International District initiative has a vision of a safer, more peaceful International District, accomplished by cultivating and boosting the neighborhood’s existing strengths and resilience to decrease crime rates. The project aims to implement a variety of community driven, place-based interventions in an effort to build trust, connect at-risk populations with resources, and combat crime. These projects fall under the broad categories of 1) community health and social services and 2) community prosecution and policing.
