Major COO Focus 2: Corner Greeters

OUR GOAL

We identify and address the place-based causes of youth victimization and crime at five focus locations, known as “hotspots” in the Rainier Beach neighborhood. We engage the Rainier Beach community, Seattle Police, and many other community-based organizations, businesses, and schools to implement non-arrest interventions.

OUR APPROACH

The place-based, non-arrest approach is founded on research at George Mason University’s (GMU) Center for Evidence-Based Crime Prevention Policy, which determined that crime impacting youth is highly concentrated at place. The research further indicates that formal criminal justice approaches can have negative outcomes for youth, their futures, their families and their community.
