City of Philadelphia: Evaluation of Community Crisis Intervention Program

Posted by City of Philadelphia on October 25, 2022

This month, the City of Philadelphia’s Office for Policy and Strategic Initiatives for Criminal Justice & Public Safety (CJPS) received the results of the first phase of a two phase evaluation of its Community Crisis Intervention Program (CCIP), conducted by American Institutes for Research (AIR), an independent researcher.

CCIP uses credible messengers to serve as community crisis outreach workers to prevent and reduce gun violence in Philadelphia.

CCIP employs proactive strategies in communities most at risk of gun violence. These strategies are aimed at fostering meaningful relationships in neighborhoods impacted by violence, steering those who are involved in violence (or at high risk of becoming involved) into alternative, positive choices, mediating community conflicts, and responding to neighborhood crises related to violence.
