Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $299,730)
The Smart Policing Initiative seeks to build upon the concepts of offender-based and place-based policing and broaden the knowledge of effective policing strategies. The most convincing research demonstrates that place-based or hotspot policing reduces violent crime and neighborhood disorder. This initiative addresses the need for effective policing that requires a tightly focused, collaborative approach that is measurable, based on sound, detailed analysis and includes policies and procedures for accountability. This grant program seeks to build upon data-driven, evidence-based policing by encouraging state and local law enforcement agencies to develop effective, economical, and innovative responses to precipitous or extraordinary increases in crime, or in a type or types of crime within their jurisdictions.
The Kansas City Police Department will implement an evidence-based policing strategy to target violent crime and improve upon public perception of law enforcement. Goals will be accomplished through proactive problem-solving conducted by police officers assigned to foot patrols of specific areas. The University of Missouri-Kansas City will assist with technical planning and the collection of primary data to examine objective and subjective outcomes.
