Technology to Empower Violence Prevention Stategies
A critical component of your holistic crime prevention strategy to maximize public safety impact
Amid a national police staffing shortage and heightened community demand for community violence intervention (CVI) services, the role of CVI Workers is increasingly crucial. However, the ability to make data-informed resource allocation decisions has been traditionally constrained, with the essential crime data being confined within law enforcement agencies. The limited crime data access constrains CVI and other social service initiatives addressing violence’s root causes, hindering their ability to demonstrate effectiveness and accountability to citizens, officials, and city managers.
THE CHALLENGE FOR CVI PROGRAMS
ResourceRouter Community, tightly integrated with ShotSpotter, the leading gunshot detection solution, will support social service and community violence intervention (CVI) organizations in their efforts to optimize their resource deployments, reduce violent crime, improve public safety and increase community trust. ResourceRouter Community is an advanced software application that utilizes a data-driven approach to identify “hot spots” where crime and violence are prevalent, allowing CVIs to more efficiently determine where they are needed most.
IMPROVE EFFICIENCY AND EFFECTIVENESS
ResourceRouter Community is a software tool that uses a data-driven approach to help CVI and other social service programs optimize their presence in an area, deter crime, and improve public safety. CVI and community outreach workers no longer need to resort to reactive, gut-based interventions —ResourceRouter Community provides place-based insights and suggested engagement activities that enables critical stakeholders to maximize their impact.
Just as importantly, this resource management software gives program managers and other administrators the ability to detect a workers’ presence in an assigned area and capture the amount of time they spend on a specific incident as well as what intervention or activity they plan to conduct. This provides a layer of accountability and oversight that is critically important for building trust within communities, and with policy makers and funders. ResourceRouter Community also provides detailed analytics that are critical to measuring impacts on crime, violence, and the delivery of resources that address root causes of violence.
With this technology, there’s greater accountability on our part because we can see where workers are and how long they’ve been there. We want to make a positive impact, and this allows our workers to get credit for the work they do.
