The District of Columbia Mayor's Focused Improvement Area Initiative: A Review of Past Practice

Group: Urban Institute District of Columbia Crime Policy Institute

URL: http://www.urban.org/UploadedPDF/412326-mayors-focused-improvement.pdf

Description

This review pertains to DCPI's analysis of the Focused Area Initiative, a community-based initiative that aims to reduce criminal activity and increase the quality of life in at-risk communities by combining community policing with human and social services delivery. It reviews the Initiative’s past efforts based on stakeholder interviews, programmatic materials, administrative records, and field observations. While many aspects of the Initiative were implemented as designed, it was not designed in such a way as to ensure sustained interagency, collaborative efforts focused on measuring and addressing outcomes. The report concludes with considerations for next steps.
