Group Violence Reduction Strategy
Tools for Practitioners
Tools for Practitioners offers information to practitioners and researchers new to the National Network strategies (Basic Implementation Guides) and to those who are experienced in applying them (Advanced Tools). The Innovations section highlights cutting-edge approaches to particular components of the strategies, such as offender notification, gang enforcement, performance management, and others.
