Violent crime is on the rise in many jurisdictions, including rural communities. Rural law enforcement agencies are left to tackle these issues, often with a decreasing tax base, personnel shortages, expansive geographic territory, and lack of access to medical treatment that can make violent crimes more fatal than in urban settings.

The Rural Violent Crime Reduction Initiative (RVCRI), funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance and supported by the National Policing Institute and Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), provides grants and training and technical assistance (TTA) support to law enforcement agencies addressing violent crime challenges in rural areas.

During this webinar, attendees will:

  • Learn about the RVCRI including a program overview and how to apply if interested
  • Hear from current RVCRI grantees on how they are using RVCRI funds and assistance to address violent crime challenges in their rural communities
  • Identify promising practices that other agencies and departments are engaging in
  • Have the opportunity to ask questions of the presenters

About the National Policing Institute: Formerly known as the National Police Foundation, the National Policing Institute’s mission is to pursue excellence in policing through innovation and science. It is the oldest nationally-known, non-profit, non-partisan, and non-membership-driven organization dedicated to improving America’s most noble profession – policing.

The National Policing Institute has been on the cutting edge of police innovation for over 50 years since it was established by the Ford Foundation as a result of the President’s Commission on the Challenge of Crime in a Free Society (1967) and the related conclusions of the Kerner and Eisenhower Commissions, taking place during the same era.
