Research & Evaluation Center

With funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and the New York City Council, the Research & Evaluation Center at John Jay College is evaluating the Cure Violence model of violence reduction. The Cure Violence model is inspired by the public health approach to violence reduction. It is used in nearly two dozen neighborhoods throughout New York City.
As part of that work, the Center obtained and mapped crime incident data disseminated by the New York City Police Department (NYPD). The map portrays criminal incidents reported to NYPD between January and September of 2015. Each incident is located on a mid-block street segment.
Murders are indicated by red dots and robberies by blue dots. Yellow borders indicate areas involved in the Cure Violence evaluation project–areas served by Cure Violence programs as well as study comparison areas selected for their similarity to program areas.
Interactive features: Clicking precisely on a crime indicator reveals the date and time of the incident. Clicking the yellow border of a Cure Violence catchment area reveals additional information about that program.
