What Our Partners Say
We’ve had a great partnership with the Center on Crime and Community Resilience for a few years now. They’ve been a strong and valued supporter of our mission and have worked closely with our staff to develop evaluation designs. Their research has been instrumental in the success of Boston Uncornered. More importantly, they truly understand how important the work is and it’s far reaching implications for our communities. This strong commitment to our work has taken them from ‘partner’ to a member of the College Bound family.–Mark Culliton (Founder and CEO, College Bound Dorchester)
Working with the Center on Crime and Community Resilience was truly a great experience. Not only were they able to provide Oakland with the most through and in-depth evaluation of violence reduction that we have had, but most importantly, they were responsive to community needs that were unique to Oakland. As such, they listened and designed a project to answer questions unique to our community. This level of expertise and analysis will provide Oakland with the information necessary to make important and responsible policy decisions and investments for years to come.–Reygan E. Cunningham (Former Ceasefire Project Manager, City of Oakland; Senior Partner, California Partnership for Safe Communities)
The Center on Crime and Community Resilience is truly a rare find. Not only do they understand how to deftly integrate research, policy and practice, but they can do so while bridging the stubborn divide between the so-called Global North and South—crossing language, cultural and political boundaries. The Center’s international practice, while young, is guaranteed to make important contributions to the field.–Jeremy Biddle (Former Coordinator, USAID Central American Regional Security Initiative)

Partners We've Worked With
We work with US governments on the state, local and federal level. We also work with governments internationally through projects with partners such as USAID.
Our non-profit partners are often at the forefront of innovative policy ideas. We use our long experience in this sector to not only assist organizations in conducting research projects, but also building capacity to better understand and use data on their own.
We are currently working on projects with four different police departments--including three projects on body-worn cameras and one on procedural justice. We have decades of experience working with police on public safety and community engagement projects.
