NNSC’s mission is to create safer communities. Our paradigm-shifting violence reduction work has demonstrated conclusively that within communities the overwhelming majority of residents are not dangerous; rather, the small number of chronic violent offenders are also at the most risk of being victimized themselves. Thus, we are committed to utilizing our evidence-based strategies and support and outreach resources to protect the most vulnerable people in the most vulnerable places. NNSC achieves this goal in a variety of time-tested ways: by strengthening community norms against offending, communicating directly with high-risk people to deter violence, using a minimum of law enforcement, helping group members succeed in their lives, and enhancing the legitimacy of law enforcement, especially police, to make communities safer. We collaborate closely with city governments, law enforcement agencies, and community representatives to realign policy and practice with community priorities and available evidence.
