According to the FBI Uniform Crime Reports, the violent crime in the U.S. has been on the rise since 2014, and the property crime rate has bottomed out after three decades of steady decline. Furthermore, while many law enforcement agencies have adopted intelligence-led policing strategies, quickly identifying active crime locations within their jurisdictions, many field commanders lack a toolkit of proven strategies to address these crime locations.
This webinar seeks to provide field supervisors and officers with a toolkit of policing strategies that have been proven to curb or eliminate specific types of crime, or crime at specific locations. These evidence-based strategies are based on research findings from numerous studies that have evaluated “what works” in policing to reduce crime. Specifically, this webinar will address offense-focused directed patrols, geographic-focused directed patrols, crime prevention by environmental design, and focused deterrence strategies targeting criminal individuals and groups.
