Webinar on Reducing Crime and Improving Public Trust

On Aug. 30, 2017, from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Eastern time, the Bureau of Justice Assistance Smart Policing Initiative will present a webinar on "Reducing Crime and Improving Public Trust through Collective Efficacy: Evidence from Miami and Brooklyn Park." This webinar translates collective efficacy theory into practice. It provides definitions of collective efficacy and informal social control and how they relate to crime reduction, demonstrates the importance of community building and describes how the police engage the community and build relationships in high-crime neighborhoods. The webinar will include useful examples from Miami-Dade County and Brooklyn Park, MN.
