Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $1,000,000)

The Innovations in Community-Based Crime Reduction Program (CBCR) supports local and tribal communities to effectively target and address violent crime issues in distressed, high-crime neighborhoods through coordinated cross-sector approaches that are linked with broader neighborhood revitalization efforts.

The goal of CBCR is to reduce crime, increase trust, and improve community safety as part of a comprehensive strategy to rebuild and revitalize neighborhoods. Through a broad cross-sector partnership team, including neighborhood residents, CBCR grantees target neighborhoods with hot spots of violent and serious crime and employ data-driven, cross-sector strategies to accomplish this goal.

Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) will use a comprehensive place-based strategy to improve police-community relations and address crime in crime hot spots. The strategy is to create a cross sector partnership between HCSO and the community and ICS, increase the number of prosocial interactions between HCSO deputies and residents, and address persistent violence and serious crime hot spots. The implementation is based on evidence-based policing disciplines, including hot spot patrols, community problem solving, principles of procedural justice, and community policing.
