Prior to founding CPSC in 2012, many of us had already worked on local justice reform and violence reduction efforts in a range of American cities. We came from a variety of backgrounds, but we shared a commitment to reducing violence and improving public safety while also seeking justice.
Through this diverse experience in cities across the U.S. and California, we came to understand that individual programs or policies simply aren’t powerful enough to address the gun violence crisis that plagues so many of our cities.
Instead, cities need an in-depth, experienced partner who is both an expert and an ally; someone to come alongside them and help them engineer the political alignment and organizational changes across policing, intervention and city governance needed to address a problem as complex as gun violence.
We created CPSC with that mission in mind: to help cities achieve near-term and community-wide reductions in violence; while improving police-community trust and changing the odds for community members at imminent risk of violence.
