Reducing Violent Crime Through Place Network Investigations
Place Network Investigations (PNI) is a citywide violence reduction strategy grounded in evidence that persistent crime patterns and violent hot spots are visible indicators of underlying crime-place networks. Crime-place networks provide the infrastructure necessary to operate illicit markets and promote violent interactions. Skilled PNI investigators, working in chronically violent micro-locations, identify these networks and associated dynamics contributing to violence. Using a holistic governance model, investigators partner with an all-city/county team to prioritize local resources and remove place-based opportunities for violence. Eradicating deeply entrenched crime-place networks produces sustained crime reductions and supports community redevelopment and long-term economic growth.

Join this webinar to learn more about PNI and the research behind it.
