Audience Comments

  • “Really interesting information – appreciated the research behind the topics. Will be looking at similar applications in my own organization.” — Ashleigh
  • “I loved the connection between homicide violence and domestic violence. This is a hard concept to get through to our sworn law enforcement at my agency.” — Paula
  • “I was able to see that some very important strategies, both LEO and community based, were specifically identified and are being used, studied for effect, and shared widely (like this webinar). Please carry on. It’s important for us to know “us locals” aren’t just trying to boil the ocean over problems alone. Thanks.” — Kim
  • “I like knowing what other jurisdictions have done that has been effective in reducing gun crime and homicides.” — Kristin
  • “The strategies talked about in the seminar have proven to be ineffective even though there wasn’t much discussion about that. A continuation of being soft with violent offenders is not likely to produce good results.” — Scott
  • “I thought that it was very valuable to know that individuals who commit crimes are similar to those who are addicted to drugs and alcohol. I found this interesting because that means that there could be services that help those that commit crimes like those that are addicted to substances.” — Samantha
  • “It addressed the problem through a variety of wholistic and collaborative approaches, recognizing the old ways of dealing with this issue have not worked. This is the same approach we have offered in addressing all community problems with the philosophies of community-oriented policing.” — David
