ABSTRACT

New Approach to Evaluation: A Guide to Creating High Performing Programs   [open pdf - 3MB]

From the Introduction: "Over the last several decades, federally-sponsored programs providing social services to address problems related to youth violence, crime, substance abuse, and mental health have evolved from single organization efforts providing specific and targeted services, to broad, cross-cutting programmatic initiatives addressing multiple issues and requiring strategic collaborations among many organizations, often with competing priorities and complex bureaucratic structures. These comprehensive and complex initiatives require grantees to build and sustain strong strategic alliances among state and local agencies such as law enforcement, schools, substance abuse prevention programs, courts, mental health agencies, and other community-based services providers. Examples of some of the prominent cross-cutting investments of the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (the COPS Office) include: [1] 'COPS Community Policing Program'[;] [2] 'COPS in Schools (CIS)'[;] [3] 'COPS School-Based Partnerships'[;] [and 4] 'COPS Problem-Solving Partnerships'[.]"
