Youth dating and violence
Stop Violence collects resources about non-repressive responses to a variety of violence, including school shootings, sexual assault, and hate crimes.The underlying belief of Stop Violence is that punishment after a crime is not effective crime prevention; a safe and peaceful society requires justice, not overdoses of prison, chain gangs and executions.The QIC-DVCW is investigating the following questions: State, county and tribal child welfare agencies are eligible to apply.The QIC-DVCW has a strong emphasis on collaboration, and therefore applicants are strongly encouraged to partner with a domestic violence agency or coalition as a co-applicant for the project.The integrated strategies' chief goal is to reduce gang-related violent crime and youth involvement in gangs.Police, probation personnel, and prosecutors share information about gang activity, diffuse crises that arise from gang conflict, and refer at-risk youth to community-based services.
As the go-to resource for policymakers, advocates, service providers, prevention practitioners and the media, Raliance boldly and innovatively advances the field nationally.
Additional topics and ongoing expansion occur through the efforts of Paul and his classes, with thanks to EMU for a Faculty Research Fellowship which helped support this project.
This strategy addresses those conditions through a comprehensive approach that links the community and government in providing positive opportunities and demonstrating clear consequences for youth at risk for gang involvement.
Key Components Programs that use this strategy combine service coordination, partnership between police and the community, suppression of gang activity through coordinated enforcement and prosecution, neighborhood mobilization, and job training for youth.
Rather than wage wars on crime and drugs, society needs to explore solutions that contribute to social justice and promote a just peace.
