Abstract
Building Safe and Sustainable Communities. Community Safety Case Studies from the 2008 MetLife Foundation Community-Police Partnership Awards for Neighborhood Revitalization. Each year, MetLife Foundation and LISC partner to recognize, sustain and share the work of innovative partnerships between community groups and police to promote neighborhood safety and revitalization. In 2008, LISC received over 500 applications from around the country. The six winners for the Neighborhood Revitalization category were selected with the help of an outside review panel of police chiefs and community development leaders. The winners clearly articulated examples of community organizations and police departments working together to reduce crime and revitalize neighborhoods. These collaborations achieved significant results and illustrated how the power of purposefully combining community building and crime prevention strategies led to safer communities.
