Evaluation of the Innovations in Community-Based Crime Reduction (CBCR) Program: Executive Summary and Final Report [open pdf - 10MB]
From the Purpose: "The purpose of this project was to conduct a multimethod study to 1) understand successful implementation of the Innovations in Community Based Crime Reduction program (CBCR) (formerly known as the Byrne Criminal Justice Innovation) and to 2) provide guidance and identify sites for a possible follow-up impact evaluation. CBCR is a comprehensive strategy developed to help neighborhoods address crime and improve community safety. CBCR is place-based and built around four pillars that differentiate it from other similar data-driven, multi-agency, problem-solving collaborative programs in the Innovation Suite: (1) CBCR is data-driven, meaning that evidence-based programs that address the specific problems identified in the community through multiple data sources must be incorporated into the approach [Data and Research], (2) CBCR includes a strong community engagement component, where residents of the target area are given a voice in the process [Community Oriented], (3) the neighborhood revitalization component allows grantees to specifically incorporate neighborhood revitalization into their project goals with residents as key partners [Spurs Revitalization], and (4) all efforts must include a strong multi-agency partnership to build strong connections across government and non-government sectors [Builds Partnerships]."
