  Annotation: This paper presents an overview and description, based on site visits of a U.S. Department of Justice funded crime prevention program in Salt Lake City, NV, the Comprehensive Communities Program (CCP).
Abstract: Salt Lake City’s Comprehensive Communities Program (CCP) was one of 16 sites invited by and funded by the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance to develop and implement a comprehensive strategy to combat crime. The program began in 1995 and sought to create a neighborhood-based model for the prevention, intervention, and suppression of crime. Its mission was to restructure law enforcement and social services systems so they could effectively reduce violent youth crime. The overall CCP strategy was to establish linkages between resources and service providers in order to more comprehensively serve the needs of children and families. At the core of its initiative were five units called Community Action Teams (CAT). A CAT is a neighborhood-based problem-solving team. By the end of 1996, CCP continued to make significant progress at the programmatic level with several educational programs developed and implemented as referral services for high-risk youth and as alternatives to prosecution and incarceration for known juvenile and adult offenders. Overall, Salt Lake City has experienced a steady decline in the rate of violent crime after 1993. This paper, supported by the U.S. Department of Justice, National Institute of Justice, is a case study of Salt Lake City’s CCP program and written as a result of site visits made to various CCP programs and interviews with CCP participants between November 1995 and January 1997. Data is incorporated from BOTEC’s CCP Coalition Survey and Community Policing Survey and information contained in several Federal and local documents and reports. Appendix A-B
