We are one of the most experienced teams in the country when it comes to making cities fundamentally safer

Our leadership team has over 50 years of combined experience in designing and implementing public safety strategies that reduce gun violence in the near-term; reduce victimization and recidivism for those at imminent risk and help to build police-community trust.
That’s why, although we work primarily in California, we’ve played central roles in violence reduction initiatives in other parts of the U.S. and in Mexico. Browse through a sample of our work below.
