Event description: This webinar examined the Urban League's Neighborhoods@Work program, a three-year-old collaboration with the LAPD that has contributed to a significant drop in homicides in the Park Mesa Heights neighborhood in central Los Angeles. The webinar covers how these two partners, along with dozens of others, originally came together; what are the key elements that have contributed to their success; and tangible policy implications and lessons that they could apply to their own work.
This webinar was moderated by Christopher Stone with panelists Blair Taylor and Charlie Beck. This discussion was cosponsored by the Harvard Kennedy School Program in Criminal Justice Policy and Management.
