Amani Safety Initiative
In May 2018, NNIP partnered with the Microsoft Cities Team to launch Catalyzing Community Criminal Justice Reform with Data, a cross-site project to better understand the local criminal justice data and advocacy landscape and encourage more local data organizations to bring their talents to bear on these issues. In Summer 2018, NNIP conducted a survey of Partners to learn about criminal justice related data, projects, and relationships. NNIP will publish a fact sheet in the next few weeks summarizing the results and is now exploring options for an in-depth quantitative analysis on one aspect of criminal justice reform in a specific city. This showcase provides a lightning-quick overview for a few interesting projects we uncovered through the survey.
This presentation will highlight what Data You Can Use learned about building capacity and engaging residents around research when they looked at crime rates, resident perceptions of neighborhood conditions, safety and police behavior in the Amani neighborhood.
