Project P.E.A.C.E. (People Engaged and Advocating for Community Empowerment) is a 4-year, $1 million grant initiative funded by the U.S. Department of Justice FY 2014 Byrne Criminal Justice Innovation Program.
Project goals are to:
- Increase community perception of safety to encourage pro-social activity by introducing collective efficacy and Social Cohesion interventions to residents, as well as police officers, in order to enhance crime reduction and sustain the efforts;
- Increase the use of anchor points in the micro-target areas as a deterrence to criminal activity, while increasing community ownership. This leads to networking among neighbors and thus increases collective efficacy and social cohesion and reduction in crime; and
- Cross collaboration between community providers, government agencies, including police and residents, ultimately serving as a crime deterrent.
The grant is administered by the Miami-Dade County Office of Management and Budget Grants Coordination Division in collaboration with the Miami-Dade Police Department (Lead Law Enforcement Agency), Justice & Security Strategies, Inc. (Research Partner) and a Cross-Sector Partnership and Mayor's Task Force.
