Safety is a critical component of a vibrant community, every bit as important as quality affordable housing, good jobs, and high performing schools. All people deserve to feel that it is safe for their children to walk to school or play in the local park, to shop in local stores, and to enjoy other neighborhood amenities. Safety is also critical to attracting new homeowners and businesses to neighborhoods where such investments can be catalysts for revitalization. In neighborhoods with persistent crime problems, the Innovations in Community Based Crime Reduction (CBCR) program, administered by the Department of Justice Bureau of Justice Assistance, supports data-driven, comprehensive and community-oriented strategies to reduce crime and spur revitalization.
