With support from State of California CALVIP grant program, The University of Pennsylvania will be evaluating this project.
CPSC began working with the City of Stockton since it filed for bankruptcy in 2012. Over the course of a decade, CPSC helped Stockton reduce fatal and non-fatal shootings by over 50% and rebuild policing around procedural justice as an organizing framework. With our support, the City of Stockton developed one of the earliest municipal Offices of Violence Prevention in the U.S. and would be recognized as a model of reform by the U.S. Department of Justice (Rosenberg 2016).
- Between 2012 and 2019, the city reduced homicides by over 50 percent.
- The University of Pennsylvania is currently conducting an impact evaluation of this project.
