Network for Safe Communities, a project of John Jay College of Criminal
Justice, was launched in 2009 under the direction of David Kennedy and
Jeremy Travis, president of John Jay College. The National Network focuses on
supporting cities implementing proven strategic interventions to reduce
violence and improve public safety, minimize arrest and incarceration, enhance
police legitimacy, and strengthen relationships between law enforcement and the
communities it serves.
American cities have implemented the National Network’s strategies with
powerful impact, particularly the Group Violence Intervention, first
implemented as “Operation Ceasefire” in Boston in the mid-1990s, and the Drug
Market Intervention, first implemented in High Point, North Carolina, in
research and field experience has proven that these interventions are
associated with large reductions in violence and other serious crime. A Campbell Collaboration Systematic Review—the
gold standard in assessing the body of evidence in social science
interventions—found “strong empirical evidence” for the effectiveness of the
strategies to address serious violent crime and overt drug markets. The
National Network has also begun to adapt its strategic framework to other
contexts, such as strategic prosecution, reconciliation between law enforcement
and distressed communities, and problems such as domestic violence and prison
