The Council on Crime and Justice Equal Justice Benefit on March 10, 2015!  was a huge success.  Over 200 people joined us at the beautiful  Town & Country Club in Saint Paul to celebrate a year of amazing work towards creating a more safe and just Minnesota.



The Council on Crime and Justice
 has been selected to serve as the chief research partner to the Minneapolis Police Department as they implement the Byrne Criminal Justice Innovation Program Grant recently awarded to the City of Minneapolis by the U.S. Department of Justice.

As research partner, the Council on Crime and Justice will collect and analyze crime data over the next twelve months; conduct focus groups with youth, community members and service providers; help develop  best practices that reduce crime and increase public safety; and contribute to the revitalization and improved livability of north Minneapolis.  

The goal of this important initiative is to leverage research and robust communication efforts to create a sustainable solution to effectively address the systemic issues driving crime in the north Minneapolis neighborhoods of Jordan, Hawthorne, Folwell and McKinley
