The program is designed to reduce crime, improve public safety, and increase mutual trust between law enforcement and community stakeholders in Mid-Westside Jacksonville neighborhoods (Grand Park, New Town, Durkeeville and LaVilla). The CBCR program takes an innovative, data-driven, and inclusive approach to impacting crime, as well as socio-economic disparities.
