In March 2016, Milwaukee was selected to be part of the US Department of Justice’s (DOJ’s) National PSP. The PSP is a DOJ-wide pilot program that enables cities to consult with and receive coordinated training and technical assistance (and an array of resources) from DOJ to support violence reduction strategies as part of a three-year engagement. Milwaukee was part of the PSP initiative through September 2019. This case study examines two distinct approaches the Milwaukee Public Safety Partnership (PSP) site took during their PSP engagement. This report demonstrates how the PSP engagement can result in very positive outcomes and impacts with leadership and philosophical changes within an organization.
