Annotation: This guide is intended as a tool to assist PACT (Pulling America's Communities Together) site-management teams in establishing, developing, and implementing coordinated and comprehensive strategies for reducing violence.
Abstract: It combines theoretical and practical information from many sources to assist with training and reference purposes. It also acts as a detailed blueprint for the development process that can be used by managers at the site level. Part I (Sections I through VII) provides an overview of and background on the PACT initiative. It includes the PACT mission statement, national goals, and objectives, providing all partners with a clear understanding of the intent of the initiative. Part I also clarifies the roles of participants and identifies key agencies and staff. Part I contains a summary of accomplishments to date of the four operating PACT sites, as well as descriptions of PACT support tools, including on-line resources and important models. Part II (Sections VIII through XI) is intended as a practical guide to the process in which local communities develop new strategies to reduce violence and other crimes. It contains comprehensive discussions of the three phases of the program: establishing a site, developing a plan, and implementing a plan. Attention is given to lessons learned across all sites as the process has unfolded. Part II provides examples from the PACT sites that will enable PACT groups to translate models into strategies and programs appropriate for their own communities. These sections include guidelines, checklists, and source materials that will assist in decision making and implementation.
