Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $200,000)

The Michigan State University (MSU) School of Criminal Justice will continue training and technical assistance (TTA) activities in support of the DMI Training and Technical Assistance initiative. This will include continuing TTA to the current group of seven cities involved in implementing DMI, two current targeted TTA sites, as well as to four additional sites. The training provided will be supported by technical assistance delivered in a variety of forms (conference calls, site visits, peer-to-peer exchange, web-based curricula and resources). Additionally, MSU proposes to begin development of a DMI implementation readiness tool, which will eventually become part of a larger Community Violent Crime Assessment tool. MSU will collaborate with the National Network for Safe Cities, housed at John Jay College, so that mutual TTA efforts can meet the needs of the largest number of jurisdictions seeking to develop a DMI program.
