Washington, DC: U.S. Department of Justice.  Researchers at John Jay College and Temple University designed an online survey to assess the progress of the National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention in six cities: Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Memphis, Salinas, and San Jose. Based upon these interim results, the efforts of the cities continue to be well received and the changes inspired by the National Forum appear to be having an effect on the perceptions of community safety and the coordination of inter-agency activities.
