Community Engagement & Data (Decemeber 2022)
Our Programs and activities continue to impact positively in significantly reducing violent crimes in all of our primary precinct areas that we serve-69th, 70th and 114th precincts. We have been quite innovative and unique in our approach to Community violence prevention. We understand that the metrics for the success of violence intervention programs is not just a decrease in crime rates, but an increase in getting resources into the hands of those directly impacted. From the perspective of the Human and Healing justice framework, we have demonstrated leadership in addressing the structural determinants violence by increasing communication and engagement in ways that historically people in housing development said had never happened. This is the hallmark of the Human Justice Network success story.
