Targeted Community Crime Reduction Project

The Tennessee Office of Criminal Justice Programs has partnered with six cities in Tennessee to implement the innovative Targeted Community Crime Reduction Project (TCCRP). Each of the cities undertook an extensive data-driven planning process prior to receiving funding for the project.  Partnerships were developed with other community and governmental agencies to identify the systemic problems located in high crime areas, to identify the needs and available resources in those areas, to identify possible solutions and to implement those strategies.  The strategies selected were required to be evidence-based or evidence informed.  A three or four pronged approach was undertaken to employ strategies of prevention, enforcement, offender intervention and neighborhood revitalization to reduce crime in these specific targeted hot spots. Use of crime analysis to determine the highest crime areas was utilized to target the evidence based interventions where needed.
