California Cities Violence Prevention Network
“Comprehensive Plans, Comprehensive Results"
The California Violence Prevention Network (CCVPN) was established in 2007 as the California Cities Gang Prevention Network. Today the Network is a statewide nonprofit organization dedicated to:
- Fostering the development and implementation of comprehensive city-wide violence prevention plans that blend prevention, intervention, enforcement, and reentry,
- Educating State and federal policy makers about how comprehensive prevention plans can help reduce violent crime at the local, state and federal level; and
- Serving as California's resource for the development and implementation of comprehensive city-wide plans, with the twin objectives of reducing violence and helping build healthy communities that don't produce violence.
Members of the Network make regular presentations to a variety of international audiences on violence prevention and provide training and technical assistance to communities in the development and implementation of comprehensive violence prevention plans.
