How to Reduce Crime with #SafetyPartners

On March 22nd, in partnership with the Bureau of Justice Assistance at the U.S. Department of Justice, LISC hosted a dialogue about successful strategies for helping communities that struggle with high rates of crime get on a path to safety and economic opportunity. In the weeks prior to the event, we shared research, blog posts and videos that showcase the work of the Byrne Criminal Justice Innovation Program in three communities across the U.S.

When Police Are Problem Solvers

In the third installment of our #SafetyPartners blog series, criminologist Sean Varano describes the value of problem-oriented policing, and what a researcher can bring to the quest for safer neighborhoods.

“What Was Done, Was Done Right”

LISC Rhode Island worked with the residents of Aleppo Street and the Providence Police Department to help turn a blighted, chronically unsafe area into a neighborhood of opportunity. By forging a partnership based on a community contract, residents, police and investors worked to reverse decades of problems. Captain Dean Isabella of the Providence PD, a native of the area, describes the transformation.
