Policymaker's Guide to Building Our Way Out of Crime: The Transformative Power of Police-Community Developer Partnerships [open pdf - 7MB]
From the Document: "The material in this policymaker's guide is drawn from a new book, 'Building Our Way Out of Crime: The Transformative Power of Police-Community Developer Partnerships', by the same authors, and addresses a range of topics that normally command the attention of policymakers--elected and appointed officials at all levels of government, community development leaders, financial industry investment strategists, private foundation executives, and others. More specifically, it seeks to answer such questions as these:  Does this strategy work? Says who? What's the evidence?  Is it feasible to implement in diverse cities?  What are the policy or political incentives and disincentives to adopting this strategy?  Do established experts in public safety, community development, and government circles believe this strategy represents a cost-effective, durable solution to neighborhood crime control and revitalization?"
